Re: NVidia 6600
I'm running the business edition. Really my CPU should have the worst
performance on my machine. My Graphics card is a 256, I have 2 GB of RAM and
a 2.0 GH processor. That should be my lowest rating I'd assume because Vista
is optimized for 2 cores. When I started with the NVidia card on Vista
installed a set for my card and the description of my card was correct. It
just seems to not be picking it up...
