6600GT both has much higher image quality, and outpeforms that pro

Great PSU, I recomend it. Comes with an adapter which you CAN use despite what some people think.

If your mobo requires a 24 pin main power connection make sure this PSU has one or u will have to get an adapter.

It doesn't matter, the connection from the PSU is still 20 pin meaning that your +12v pin might get a bit toasty. Obviously people run ATX 2.0 motherboards fine with 20 pin connections but if you can avoid it that would be ideal.

css = counter strike source, correct? With eithr of those video cards you will be unhappy with the results in css. Out of the two I would pick the 6600GT.
