You really don't need a 6600GT, as they are entry level cards for great gaming, a 6200 card would suffice, just make sure it's PCI-e so if you want to game and/or upgrade later, it's easy.
He's not planning on doing much upgrading. It's more of a trial build for him. He said so in his first post. It's a 'build it and be done' computer. He is wanting to learn with a decent computer when he's done.
