Are you sure your 6600 GT card has passive heating? I have one of those cards and the cooler and fan are quite large. On second thought I think you may have one of those new cards that have heat-pipe coolers, If this is your issue then your case temp's are where you are haveing the problems and you need to increase the through-put of air by increasing your fan size or fitting additional fans as required
