6600 GT....never get any "LE" card from Nvidia. "LE" stands for "Lame Edition." The 6800LE gets you about the performance of a 9800XT, only with Shader Model 3 support.

mmm so tempting to get into 6800 but it seems that the 6600 gt might be lacking :|

Yeah, you will be way better off with a 6600 GT. If you want a 6800, go with the 6800 GT. With Nvidia, always get a card with a "GT" or "Ultra" suffix. Avoid cards with "LE" or no suffix at all like "6800."

also avoid Nvidia cards with XT or GE. eg. GeForce FX 5900XT, and 6800GE those also suck.

6800GE? I've never heard of that one.

I do too, but he said GE twice, and the thread is called "6600GT or 6800 LE", so I was just pointing that out to him.
