In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i5 2500K are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 LE.

The HD i5 2500K was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6600 LE, and so the HD i5 2500K is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6600 LE when running the latest games.

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 LE has 256 MB video memory, but the HD i5 2500K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 6600 LE has 7 Shader Processing Units but the HD i5 2500K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 2500K requires 95 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6600 LE.
