Default Low End Cards

Between the 6600gt and x800gt, which would you choose.
6600gt-pci-express $154
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130214
pros:
SM 3.0 support
FP 32 support
sli capable

cons:
128-bit memory interface
128mb

x800gt-pci-express $165
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131420
pros:
256MB
256-bit interface
crossfire?

cons:
SM 2.0 support
FP 16 support




Is 256MB and 256-bit more important than SM 3.0 and FP 32 support? Supposedly, the x800gt is faster than a 6600gt. X800gt also based on ati x850 core, but with half the pipelines.
