Question "Upping" my future video card

Hello,
I've been looking at the Sapphire X550, but I saved some money on RAM so now I'm going to up it. How's the eVGA Geforce 6600LE? How does it compare? Will it run HL2 ok?
If it's not as good as the Sapphire, what video card is better, (if only slightly) and not over $90?
Thanks!

Save some money and get a 6600gt for around 130-150$.
I know it's more than you would like to spend, but would you rather spend 90 bucks now, then realize later you want better performance, and spend another 150$ on a 6600gt?
In the long run, the 6600gt is MUCH better.
