The exact same thing happened to me (also choppy animation, and inevitable game crash in addition to your stuff) when I first got my Chaintech 6600(non-GT) AGP 8x. I installed the drivers (71.89) from the CD that came from the company. My buddies told me that I would benefit from the latest drivers from the website (www.nvidia.com). This fixed a few problems but not all of them...
You may want to disable Vsync and fastwrites. Also in BIOS, make sure your card is set to AGP 8x and not 2x or 4x. If you are unsure on how to do these things, ask around before trying any of it. All these things helped me a little bit.
The next thing I tried (suggested by Chaintech ) was to roll back the drivers to version 66.93. Who has ever heard of buying a card from a company, then being told by that company:
"Better not use the software we designed for that card, it's no good. Try using an earlier version of drivers supplied by nVidia... " BAH!
So, I did what he said and it helped things out the most, but I still was unhappy with how choppy everything was and how games would randomly crash.
In the end (and I pray this is not true for you), I RMAed that headache and got a new 6600(non-GT) AGP 8x, from Asus. Now I am running all my games with version 71.89 drivers (from www.nvidia.com) and everything runs beautifully. No problems. No choppys animations. No stupid flashing pull-down menus. And most importantly NO MORE CRASHES....
One more thing I wanted to mention. With the 6600GT, your Power Supply should be at least 350W and >20A in the +12V rail to really see what the card can do.
There! I am done with my big song and dance. I hope this is helpful to you. Good luck.

The web site is
Click at the top Nvidia GF, then Click WinXP, then download the 6693 drivers. That will fix your problem, too bad people like us can't use the newest drivers, and i know how you feel, this will fix it. Just make sure to go to add/remove programs and uninstall your nvidia drivers before installing the new omega drivers.
