The general consensus around here is that 6800 is a bigger number than 6600, thus it is better. No, really. The 6800 has 16 pipelines, the 6600 has 8. It will be a lot faster.

lol i know the number is bigger but still some people have enjoyed the 6600 more then a 6800, i do not know much about these two cards but since the 6800 has 16 pipelines then i guess it is better. any more comments?

6800 is not the 6800GT. 6800 only has 12 pipelines and is of comparable performance to the 6600GT.

Don't plan on finding a AGP 6800GT, aren't made anymore. The best bet is an AGP 6800GS. Just unlock it FOR him, and it'll be like a AGP 6800GT right there.

If you DO find a AGP 6800GT, plan to pay ~$350 for it. Not a good idea for a budget.

Those are not 6800GT's, they are 6800 vanillas, which are slower than the GT, but still faster than the 6600GT. For AGP, the best you are going to do is a 6800GS:

If you can't afford that then get this:
