I think that your driver is not supporting the 6600GT card. For this i would like to advise you to modify the driver file and will need to include the device ID of a 6600GT card. This will help you in installing the 6600GT card. I have also tried the solution on my system and it is working fine. So you can also try to do the same thing. I hope that it will definitely help you in solve your problem and you will be successfully able to connect the third monitor on your system. If still your problem is not getting solved out, then reply me back.

I will like to suggest you to try the following steps.
  1. Go to the device manager.
  2. Then you need to go to properties of the 6600GT graphic card.
  3. After going there select update driver option.
  4. Now you will have to point it to the nvidia folder by giving a path where you have installed the nvidia.
  5. This will update the device driver
Hope this will help you.

I am also having the same set up at my home. I am using 9800 GTX card and also an old 7900 GS card along with it. I am using the two monitors on my 9800 GTX card and the third on 7900 GS card. I was able to run this setup successfully, but now started getting the same problem on my system. So can anyone suggest me how to solve this problem? Thanks.

I have a solution for this issue. So I would recommend you to check the PCI-E configuration in the BIOS. This is because i was also getting the same problem. My system was not recognizing my 7900 card; i just tried to play around with my PCI-E configuration in the BIOS and was able to solve the issue. Even you can go for the same as it might help you in getting your problem being solved out.
