Hi and welcome to TechIMO!
A 6600gt is a Nvidia branded graphics card. You will need to go to nvidia.com, choose your region, go to drivers then choose geforce drivers. From there you will need to manually choose it from the list (there will be an option for geforce 6 series) and it will bring you to the page.
Once there, download it, and once you open it/run it, it will be an autoinstall and you just let it finish then reboot.Main PC: AMD FX-8350 / 16gb DDR3 1600 / AMD 7970GE 1200mhz Core & 1600mhz Mem / Win7 Pro 64bit
File Server: AMD Opteron 180 / 3gb DDR400 / Nvidia 6200 / WinXP Home 32bit / Lubuntu 12.10
