I want to play GRAW, my current card wont, and i play games like nfsmw, flatout 2, FEAR, Panzer Elite Online, and Just Cause. All of these games work but not on any good quality levels

well what is your current card?

the 6600gt is the better of the two, but for games like that, especially GRAW, you need something a bit more powerful than a 6600.

i would recommend something like the 7600gt or higher. what is your budget?

My current card is a Nvidia Geforce 4 4200 ti, it works fine but games stopped supporting it, my budget is around $200.00, i have a thing about spending to much on a vid card.

I have been looking at these cards

oh, so you are limited to AGP cards then, or are you upgrading the motherboard as well?
