The 6600GT 128MB is better than the 6600 256MB.

The AMD system would be alot better in games, more ram, faster video card, and the processor is still very good.

In Far cry the 2800 beats the 3.2ghz prescott (

I would recomend getting a socket 939 though, as you will get the dual channel ram, that gives a nice boost.

Cisco CCNA, Comptia A+, 1/3 through CCNP
