I try to stay out of these discusions about which card is better, but come off it!!! since an x1600 512mb is really 2 x800 256mb's how could anyone think a 128mb 6600gt would be better?? And there's nothing slow about the cards ram.

I am nvidia all the way now, but I like facts not fiction. Everyone seems to forget that the x850xt/pe spanked the 6800ultra hand's down. (people forget because the geforce 7's came out shortly after the 850's) Ok now that I got that off my chest and all joking aside, lol do not get a 128mb card. try playing BF2 with that.

Let the flamming begin,,, lol

woah buddy those names arent literal an x800 would beat an x1600 any day, just because its double its name it doesnt mean anything.
As for the original question i think the 7600 gs is better than the 6600gt so i'd go for the 7600gs (i'm pretty sure they're the same price)

a pretty good eVga oneHere

i'd put 7600 as my first choice, if not then definitely the 6800, then after that the 6600, then the x1600.

The X1600Pro is the ATi equal to the 6600GT, but it doesn't seem to get as many good reviews as the 6600GT does.

It'd get the 6600GT. XFX.
