    nope there isnt, no 6600 PCIe card had one, but you can flash it to an 8pipe 6600 easy enough. Good find for 20 bucks. Make its a normal 6600 and you should double your power, right now its comparbile to a 6200 128bit card which is about equal to a 9600pro

    the 6600 LE was unlockable, and hasnt been made in a long time either. They should all be based on the NV43 A3 core not the A4 that is locked, but you might get unlucky

    nope, the 6600Le was an OEM product released in the price segment the 6200 would later fill.

    I know alot about Nvidia product history, its sorta a hobby of mine lol
