the 9600xt is old now, i was say get the 6600GT (128mb) for sure. The 256 6600LE is junk and the GT destroys it even though its only got half the memory. The 6200 is not a gaming card at all, it only has the 512mb as a marketing gimmick, it wont have much of an advantage over a 128mb 6200 and again the 6600GT will destroy it.

AMD x2 5000+ black edition at 3.3GHZ zalman cnps 9700-NT
Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard
3072mb: OCZ ddr800 gold
2x 7800GTX in SLI for 20" viewsonic
OCZ 600watt power supply - plug for my gfs site
