Should work fine, with some caveats as anything in life.

You didn't mention what interface you need, if it's AGP a 5200 might  
even work better (chroma-key vs. overlay), but the bottom line is it  
should be OK.

I was going to chastise you for not checking the WiKi under  
"hardware" but the info there seems limited and somewhat out of date,  
and a check of gossamer for "6600" brings up 17 pages of stuff.

Dang, another thing I should do when I get around to it, update the  
WiKi on video cards :-)
