In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce4 MX 460.

The GeForce 6600 GT was released over a year more recently than the GeForce4 MX 460, 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 GeForce4 MX 460.

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 GeForce4 MX 460 and the GeForce 6600 GT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 10.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce4 MX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is slightly better than the GeForce4 MX 460.

The GeForce4 MX 460 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce4 MX 460 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 GeForce4 MX 460.

The GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce4 MX 460.
