Default video card help

I have a amd sempron 3200+ 939 socket with 2 gigs of ram I am using the onboard video at the moment ( radeon 200 express) I have a pci-e slot open can I use and nvidia card or would it be better to use an ati card with the mobo I have? If I can use nvidia I am thinking about the 6800 series card as it has more pipelines then the 6600 series, what would be my best choice for around the 150 range as this is one I am thinking of

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130261

Core clock: 325MHz
D-SUB: 1
DirectX: DirectX 9
DVI: 1
Memory Clock: 600MHz
Memory Interface: 256-bit
OpenGL: OpenGL 1.5
PixelPipelines: 12
TV-Out: HDTV/S-Video Out
VIVO: No

Model #: 256-P2-N381
Item #: N82E16814130261 $159.00

will this beat the 6600's because of the pipeline difference?

I would hiiiighly recommend saving a few more dollars and buying a 6800GS. You'll be thanking yourself that you did.
