I bought a an older Computer from eBay that costed $127.50 almost 2 years ago now. After obtaining the PC, someone in my neighborhood wanted to give away their PC parts, one of those parts is the topic of this post. The XFX GeForce 6600 AGP 4x (Model: PV-T43K-UDF3).

The PC has an Intel D815EEA motherboard, 2 80 GB IDE Hard Drives, and 256 MB of ram split between 2 Micron Technology 8LSDT166AG-133B1 (clocked at 100 MHz and re-branded by A-TECH) and runs a an Intel pentium III SL4MA with a 100 MHz FSB and with a core clock of 800 MHz. It's also running Windows XP Professional 2002

I've been trying to find the drivers from XFX that shipped with the XFX GeForce 6600 AGP, but I can't seem to find anything about this GPU, or it's original packaging, so I don't even know if XFX even shipped their version of the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 and even if XFX even made drivers for this GPU. The reason why I believe that XFX had drivers for this GPU because the XFX GeForce 6600 GT came in a huge box with a CD with drivers and overclocking software from XFX. (https://www.mercari.com/us/item/m27401897789/ This link shows the XFX GeForce 6600 GT with everything the box came with).

On Archive. Org, There are archives for both the XFX GeForce 8800 GT and 6200

On eBay there is a listing for a XFX GeForce 6200 AGP 8X in it's original packaging and it's driver and software CD. So where is the CD with XFX Drivers and Overclocking Software for the XFX GeForce 6600 AGP? I would like to use XFX's Overclocking for the XFX GeForce 6600 that's in this Windows XP Machine to bush this system to it's Limits So I can Benchmark the results and compare it to the un-overclocked benchmark results.

another question that I have is, can I use the driver/ software disc image archive for the XFX GeForce 6600 GT just to get the Overclocking Software I want? (I don't believe the overclocking software is GPU specific). The software is called Overclock-enabler according to the archive.org listing.

Any help will be appreciated.

Welcome to Vogons 😀

According to the model no. you mention, this is the product page on the old XFXForce website

PVT43KUD: GEFORCE 6600 AGP 8X 256MB DDR DUAL DVI & TV OUT - https://web.archive.org/web/20050404031245/ht … hp?sku=PVT43KUD

and this appears to be the product when it was on sale at Newegg

XFX GeForce 6600 256MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card PVT43KUDF3 - https://www.newegg.com/xfx-geforce-6600-pvt43 … N82E16814150086

The pictures at Newegg suggest the card possibly shipped with CD version 66.81B (the 6600GT link you posted above is 66.81). Can't help you tracking a copy or 66.81B but I'd suggest that there are better / later drivers and overclocking utilities than were supplied on that CD, though probably no harm in trying the ones on the 6600GT CD first.
