Not many places to go from there...Is your 6600GT agp or pcie?


If Pcie, Upgrade to a 7800GTS and upgrade memory to 2 gb.

If in doubt about memory upgrade:

Choose the click here to launch memory tool option..Post back with bus details (agp / pcie) and will try and point you in the right direction re: graphics..
