Ok, I need help here!! I have been looking online for some info on a new video card that was received a gift from my girlfriends brother. (He has no info on it) The manual, except for the cover and certain page/section headers is all written in korean/asian of some type. It is listed as a 6600GT on the info sticker on the back of the video card... 256MB it has an EMTEK sticker on the fan.
The focal point on the manual cover in bold large lettering is XENON, and the cover also has mention of NVIDIA on it, but NOTHING I have seen online even comes close to resembling it, therefore, essentially I have no freaking idea what I have here! lol! (It is built on a bright red board, and there is a large heatsink/fan on top of the chip, as well as incorporating two other rectangular heatsinks, one above and one on the side of the main heatsink/fan)
Can anyone lend a hand here? If someone can email me, I can send photos of the card, its stickers, and also photos of the manual etc. I just need to know what I am dealing with here, and try and figure out what I have.

What you have is a very nice card that can retail for $190+

256M version...which is very good

edit:

OK, I just found the manufacturer, they'r a Korean Manufacturer, and I found an image of the card, or one of the possible varations of this card. Does it look like this (click left attachment)?

which one does the connector next to the heatsink look like (click right attachment)

it is the AGP 8X photo, and yes, that is the exact card that you have in the photo except for the missing heatsinks on the top and right side chips. It's a good card is it? I would assume that it must be along the same lines as the north american geforce 6600GT? Can you tell me anything about it? Like where I could ever get an english manual or english info on it? I can't seem to get any info on it. And the korean connection would make sense, he is Canadian but lives in South Korea and works there as a professor.

Oh yes, no matter where its manufactured, that's an Nvidia 6600 GT chip in there, and some nice DDR memory. It can play todays games with no problem whatsoever.

As for the manual, I'm not sure there's much I can do for you. I tried to track down the website with no luck.

but if you have a AGP 4x/8x port in your computer, it should work with the latest nvidia drivers with no problem (nvidia uses unified drivers, which work under all thier geforce/tnt line video cards)

The thing here is most of the geforce 6 (what you have) series card have a power connector at the back of the card (not show in the picture above since that picture is of the PCI-Express verson, and the PCI-E bus has better power supply then AGP). You need at least a decent 350 watt power supply to get this puppy working. And if you do, it will totally rock. 6600GT can play Doom3 like a charm.

edit: I found their website, but couldent find the manual, and if I did, I bet you $50 there's no english version. There's not even an english version of thier website
