Default New video card

I currently have a Gf4 ti 4600 128mb, that I am looking to replace with a 256mb video card, for hopefully under $250. I mostly game. Does anyone have any good suggestions on a card to replace this with, that will make a HUGE improvement?

Nvidia 6600GT check newegg. They are betw. 180-210. Check the core and memory speeds. Buy one that has 500/1000. Gigabyte it one that comes like that.

Nvidia 6600GT, it's only 128meg though and it's a 180$ card

However even if you strapped on another 128meg, you wouldnt have a peformance increase with this card
