256mb's doesn't really matter with the 6600gt. But for the manufactuer MSI and ASUS would be my choice closely followed by the Gigabyte.

I've heard that the new 6800XT (350/900) with 256mb of GDDR3 256bit memory is going to have at least 8 pipes if not 12, and will beat the 6600GT. However, it's illogical to say that the current 6800XT (350/700) can beat the 6600GT (500/1000), when they have the same amount of memory and pipelines. If it is possible, I'd be shocked.
