Definitely go for a 6600GT over a 9600 Pro. The 6600GT is the best value for money and will outperform the 9600.

Same with me, I've got the 9600 and I'm gonna replace it with a 6600GT.

I've heard good things about the MSI 6600GT. Thats most likely the one i'll be getting when i decide to purchase. Plus its just a lil bit cheaper than most of the other ones. Go on newegg and read reviews, but i'd say MSI for the money.

Thats the MSI i'd recommend.

eVGA and Leadtek I've heard are very good too.
