Default Please help!

I want to get a graphics card that will not limit me on any of the newer games. I am getting it with a whole computer and am having trouble deciding between the geforce 6600 256mb and the 6600gt 128mb. Which one is better? Also, is the better of these two able to run any game without gameplay problems? If you want to suggest another card thats fine, but I can't get much more expensive than these.

6600GT 128 MB


Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt.

i am in accord with these two gentlemen. The 6600GT as it were is quite possibly the greatest budget card e'er. Purchase it ere it is past due.

Rosewill black case with 400W PSU (420W Thermaltake on the way)
MSI Nforce4-ultra Neo4 platnium
evga Nvidia 6600gt pci-e
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ winchester
Corsair ValueSelect 1 GB (2x512) RAM

AOpen combo drive

Gig \'em and God bless

yeh, no denying it, the memory makes it heaps faster, 1.6ns compared to 3.6 or 4.0 also the clocks are higher than the 6600 anyway, so even if they used the same memory, the GT would be better.
