Hmm sure you can't bump it up about 40 bucks? If so, the 6600GT is a very good card and will outperform any below it by far.
Best 6600GT:
Cheaper (Still okay brand):
Cheapest (Third party brand):

Uhh... a 6600LE ? 9600XT? Depends on what brand you like. I'd go with 6600LE.

If you cant go over 100


Though the 6600GT is a big step up from the 9*** series from ATI and the FX series from nvidia

Well his sig says he has a 9800xt, so wouldnt a 9600xt be a step down?
I say try to sell the one in your sig and buy a 6600gt or 6800gs, depending on how much you can make off of it.
