If you're overclocking, then OCZ is a good choice, otherwise, the Corsair is fine.

For OCZ, the Platinum and Gold series are good for overclocking, they're also quite expensive.

Another suggestion would be to get a 1GB set of RAM and upgrade the 6600GT to a 6800GT, assuming that you are into games.

If I wanted to get a 7800. Is there a big difference between the GT and the GTX?

Both will run all games atm but soon when new games come out, the 4 extra pipelines on the GTX will make a difference

do not go with XMS sense they are overpriced and dont OC very well unless you get the TCCD which has been discontinued, the OCZ titanium series is very highly priced which i dont recommend, defintely go with the platinum series from OCZ

pipelines is the thing inside the video card, the more the better, doesnt in render the picture on the screen?

you unlock them by using a program in windows, rivatuner, and you do a couple of clicks on the mouse, hit ok and tada retart and your there
