Default New Video Card

Well I dont have much money at all.
The MOST I want to spend is 190.

I'm wondering which would be better.
The 6600GT or the normal 6800?

6600GT:

6800:

When choosing please tell me why you chose it.

Thank you!

6600GT. Faster clock speed I believe. Overclock it to blow the normal 6800 away.
