What is your budget? Do you think you could squeeze a 6600gt into your budget? They are not alot more.

As far as I can spend is just around those cards , I know how good of this 6600GT . I'll try to bargain with the dealer ,but could you guys just give me the recommendations from the choices above?

By the way, I am an Malaysian ,the currency value here is much different. If I buy 6600gt it will cost me another $300. Thanks.

The standard 6600, as the X*** series from ATI are terrible cards.

Is it true ? I had done a lot of research about those cards ,wasn't that X600 XT has more powerful than the other due to its GPU peformance like (Memory Bandwitdh, Clock Speed except for color pipelines).

Beedub had a X800pro about half a year ago, and he was getting single figured FPS.
