In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the Intel GMA 3000.

The GMA 3000 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GMA 3000 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the GMA 3000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6600 GT.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 128 MB video memory, but the GMA 3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GMA 3000 has 8 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the GMA 3000 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 6 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6600 GT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GMA 3000.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GMA 3000.
