Is your 6600 GT PCIe or AGP? I would have suggested that you upgrade in this order: Mobo, Cpu, graphics card, RAM.

AMD Newcastle skt 754 3000+
Elitegroup 755-A2 ATX motherboard
120 gig PATA Hard drive
128 mb AGP 8x ATI Radeon 9250
300 watt 12 volt psu
Antec SLK 1600 case

OCZ Rev2s are on sale at newegg right now for 170 bucks, an absolute steal and if you have the money I'd get 'em now, I have some and although I can't comment from direct experience yet they're guranteed to hit 250MHz and with the right knowhow I'm confident they can hit 300MHz.

If you want the fastest memory you could find you should check out the OCZ DDR625s, they're designed specifically for use with the DFI nf4 and if I had that kinda cash to burn I'd love to get my hands on them. Let's just say I'd probably take these if offered before a 6800 Ultra SLI.
Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

My god, I did not know that it was so damn expensive! I like the looks of those first OCZ's you put up Gaara, might get those.

@emmerald: I already have my gfx card, and I am upgrading around that. I was going to get my mobo next, but I think I will get memory first, and then a mobo. Since it's on sale.

what's your current motherboard, CPU and RAM?

I would suggest, if you can, to get an Athlon 64 3000+ Venice with a socket 939 non-Asus motherboard
the guy who reviewed it with the Asus motherboard couldn't get stable overclocks. however, the Venice is capable of a lot of overclocking with a good board

Intel P4 478. I cannot afford a new chip, but thats alright, I have the 2.4 prescott 1mb cache. Kingston aluRAM right now, and a Jetway 875PMAX motherboard. I have pretty crappy parts, thats why I'm upgrading.
