Default Return 6600 and get 6600GT?

I recently bought the 6600, but I found it was a bit of a mistake. The GT performs much better, but I am not displeased with the 6600. I like it, but there are some times where I think, "Man, I should have payed that 30 more bucks for a GT".
So I bought it from an online store where they said I could return it for full value and buy a different video card at their site.
Should I..
a) Keep the 6600
b) Return it, get the Gt
c) Get other graphics card sub200 (please specify)
Thank you

Well, the 6800 vanilla outperforms the 6600GT, so I'd go for that if I were you.

Or

http://www.chiefvalue.com/app/produc...tem=14-150-089

?

Note I have to get it from that site, it's where I bought my other one. They only do a return policy where you get full refund and have to buy a different product from their site.

Ouch lol..
That's on newegg for 160$ after rebates, but I have to buy it here.

So, should I get a 6600GT or the XFX 6800?
