definitely 6600

Edit:try to find the xfx version of the 6600 I believe it has ddr2 ram which is faster than regular ddr which comes with other 6600's but check to see that it says ddr2 in its specs because they have regular versions too.

...and the XFXs have a higher failure rate than any other nVidia video card manufacturer. Which would you rather have...stabiity, or speed?

Try to get one from eVGA.

yeah the 6200GE is a budget card and quite brickly, 6600 Vanilla is easily better but then gt betters that value wise if you want to go even higher.

I'm guessing the gamers edition tag is what makes the price higher, slightly better than regular 6200 but owned by 6600.
