Question Buy this now or wait for extra money ? Please help me out !

With the money I got for X-mas I can get a AMD64 3500+(130nm), Corsair XMS 3200 1 Gig, eVGA 6600GT, and a MSI Neo2 Plat. along with the other usual stuff. Question is, should I wait another month and get the 6800GT over the 6600GT or could I get by with the 6600GT for like 6 months and then get whatever the new thing is then ? I know the 6800GT has more pipelines but it is about $170 more. I'll be playing HL2 like everyone else and I might go through Doom3 again.

it all depends what type of person are you, if you are a patient person like me i would get the 6800gt, but the 6600gt would do fine
