If you get anything from the 7 series just make sure its this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130054

If you want something from the 6 series then this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814141018

But for $25 more the first 7600gts will DESTROY the 6600

trust me i highly suggest that first card

The best one out of all those is the 1600Pro maybe. A few games the x1600pro runs a good bit faster, but in other games the 7300gt runs faster as well. So for price and if those are you ONLY options get the 7300GT it should run pretty decent . It and the X1300PRO are about the same with the 7300gt being a bit faster on average. Thats the best options i can give you. Also the BFG version is slighlty overclocked which is good.

If you look at the FPS on the games you can see that stock the 7300GT has a clear advantage over the X1300PRO
