Which is better out of the Geforce 6600Gt 128mb and the Geforce 6600 256mb? Isn't it better to have a video card that is 256mb?

not necessarily. The core and memory speeds are much more important. The 6600 GT is a far superior card to the 6600. Hell, the 9800 pro 128mb performed better than the 9800 pro 256MB. unless its a bleeding edge card, the memory size isnt that important.

So is the Gefoce 6600Gt 128mb the best video card that I could buy in that price range?

if u dont want to spend any more than $200 on a card, then yes, it is. However, if u wanna squeeze out the cash, I would recommend a Radeon X800 XL

Agreed.

ide toss in a better PSU and up the AMD 3000 to a 3200... no? i dont know much about AMD but im pretty sure its better to get a 3200.

Cheers-

EDIT: Also :

CD/DVD Drive ( 16x DVD-ROM Drive - Sony Black )
CD-RW/DVD-RW Drive ( Sony DWD-26A Dual Format/Double Layer 16X DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive Black )

just get 1 or the other (better to get second)..
