Yep, the 6600 GT is better. Theirs alot more to video cards then memory. If your going to get it, make sure you buy the eVGA6600 GT.

yeq even w/ less emory. for one it has higher clock speeds and for two 256 memory dosetn matter that much for righ tnow. The GT is the better bet by a long shot.

Why do they bother putting 256meg on a normal 6600, yet GT's only have 128? I fail to see their logic.

Except, if it's to sell to the my card has my meg people

it's because some people just look at the amount of memory and think it's the best. they fail to understand that quantity does not equal quality.

True, i know people who thing the GeForce FX 5200 256MB will outperform the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB, just because it has 256MB.

Increased memory size on video cards will generally only play a factor in high resolution gameplay (1600x1200 and higher). Clock speed and pipeline architechture are always more important specifications on a video card.
