Default Help?

I dont want to spend much more money than Im already going to but I hear that if unlocked the 6800 can come close to the 6800gt and well I think that would be better and last alot longer than a 6600gt.
If you guys think otherwise please post, if you do please tell me how long a 6600gt will get me.
Also tell me what I can do with these specs to save some cash at no performance cost.

Looks like a damn good setup to me. I'd stick with the 6600GT. From my experience with it, its a very decent card for the price.

Get a sony dvd-rom instead of cd-rom. 6600gt at monarchcomputer.com is $130. dont forget as5 if ocing or windows if needed.
