NVIDIA’s GeForce 6600 GT is renowned for exceptional performance at affordable price-points. While this chip is one year old and seems like it is time for it to leave, the market is still looking forward the GeForce 6600 GT and considers it to be the best performance-mainstream solution. This is a reason why ASUS decided to introduce its new passive SilentCool cooler along with its GeForce 6600 GT-based graphics card, which is, by the way, one of a few GeForce 6600 GT products with 256MB of memory.

Colin McRae Rally 2005
Well, 128MB of graphics memory seems to be quite enough for Colin McRae Rally 2005 : ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer is not any faster than the reference GeForce 6600 GT even with enabled full-screen anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering. Overclocking does make a lot of sense, as it provides 10%-18% performance boost compared with what we can achieve at the nominal frequencies.
