Says its shipped and sold by Newegg and I was wanting to upgrade to a newer card. Is this a good card for a somewhat decent price?

Not bad. The price does seem pretty good for an RX 6600, only about $130 above MSRP. I don't really see any major issues with this system, and would feel comfortable buying it if you really needed a card in this price range.

you dont really state what you have, but saw now.

if you think its worth it to you. do wish it had some of the same features like the RTX cards, but its at least no 6500.

Not great price due to the market etc, but seeing that the 3060 is nearly double the price and others are 100 dollars more...

"Its fine"?

 

What you might expect from 1650 super to 6600, 30 fps vs 60 fps if both cards at max setting on 1080p. So in some games double the performance or 50% better in general? (not in all games). As with 1080p it should do great.

 

Now I didn't see the page, hopefully its a fine 6600 card, as some cards mess with what one can allow.

The original plan was to get a RTX 3060 however like you said its more than double of the price of a RX 6600.

I know my 1650 Super is a decent card to have during a time like this and I am oh so grateful to have this card. But I want to future proof my build and the 1650 Super is starting to be capped out in newer titles, lower FPS counts that usual but not by much that I could complain about. 

 

The 6600 is pretty good with the 5600x as in some videos I did watch with this combo. Its more than half of what I am currently getting. But at the same time, I want to test my luck with Newegg shuffles and at least try to still get a 3060. Any version is fine, Non OC or OC, doesn't matter as its a 3060 and its a good card to have.

 

I don't know what to do, do I buy this and just stick with the 6600? I have heard the driver for the entire 6000 series of AMD cards are having tons of problems too.
