Erm... I would say one of the ATI X*** range. The 6600 has quite a big jump down.

X800 Pro is the next step down from a 6600 GT, but it is also much more expensive. Just get the 6600 GT, you can't beat it for price/value.

yeah you don't want the 6600, the GT is like the 6600 X2.... you would probably be better off with the X800 PRO as Beedubaya said
