well, that's a tough one.
ask yourself if you prefer ATI or nVidia cards.
i'm in the same boat, i'm looking for a new card but don't want to spend too much.
through much debate, i'm deciding to go w/ the ATI 9600Pro ($119) for my system, just because i will be building a new system next summer, and that is the best card to stretch out my current system till then.
i'm upgrading from an nVidia Ti4200 card, which was awesome, but a bit out-dated now. i want to see how ATI cards handle.
but as of right now, the 6600GT would be the better choice for performance.
but don't forget to factor in you CPU speed. you really should have at least a Pentium 4 2.8ghz or AMD 2800 to run the 6600GT as it was intended.
if you have less than either of those...go w/ the 9800Pro, unless you're planning to upgrade your CPU too.
AND you should have at least a 350 power supply (PSU) to run the 6600GT.
that's my two cents.
