Default 7300GS or 6600 Vanilla?

I need either one of these for a silent PC. Don't reccomend any other cards please, yes I know the GT is only like 10 bucks cheaper or whatever but I specifically need to know which one of those two cards is better? I'm leaning towards the 7300GS right now since its a bit cheaper and performs quite well in games.

Oh both are PCIE btw

Thanks

i would say 6600 because it has 8 pipes and 128 bit memory interface, while 7300GS is 4 pipes and 64 bit memory interface.

7300 is crap.

Go with the 6600 one.

The 7300GS sucks hard, so does the 6600 vanilla. The X1300Pro beats both of them.

yes but X1300pro is more expensive, 6600GT is cheaper and better.

Wtf are you talking about? You posted the most expensive X1300pro on newegg! You can get an MSI X1300Pro for $92:

MSI makes very cool running cards as well.
