Default Best vid card for $150?

My friend is looking buy a video card(has integrated graphics right now) He's not looking to spend more than $150 for it. Is the 6600GT still the best buy around this price range? (haven't looked at newegg since I bought this system, which was like feb)

Lucky enough for your friend there are even better cards out for around the same price. I am assuming he has PCI-E but I will give you an option for AGP as well.

For PCI express I recommend this

And for AGP I recommend

By the way I highly recommend

Let me know what your friend buys!

the second link bigpal gave is your best option

the 7600gt is best in that price range...

also, if you find a x850xt for the same price, that would also be great!

edit: ya i found a couple, and at a great price.. you can't go wrong with it!

i can't tell the difference b/w the 2
