In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 580 XGL.

The GeForce 6600 GT was released over a year more recently than the Quadro4 580 XGL, and so the GeForce 6600 GT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro4 580 XGL.

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 64 MB more video memory than the Quadro4 580 XGL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6600 GT also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 12 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 580 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is slightly better than the Quadro4 580 XGL.

The Quadro4 580 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 580 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 5 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 Quadro4 580 XGL.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 580 XGL.
