Default Video Cards???

I have a ATI 9600 pro. Well it is just not cutting it anymore.
I am looking at 3 cards right now. Maybe you can tell me what you think.

nvidia 6600 gt
Nvidia 6800 le 128 mb 8 pixel pipline
ATI 9800 pro 256 mb memory 256 bit interface

and does anyone know if the nvidida 6800 (non LE) (non GT) (non ultra)
have 8 or 12 pixel pipeline? I know the LE has 8.

Thanks to anyone that can give me there input on this matter.
I have been racking my brain on what to get for 3 months

The regular 6800 has 12 pipelines, but if you are going to do that, get the 6800 GT, otherwise just get the 6600 GT. The 6800LE is highly crippled and the 9800 Pro is outdated and is destroyed by every one of the cards you mentioned.

The 9800 Pro is a cheap value card now
The 6800 and 6800LE are highly crippled cards, with slow memory

6600GT is your best bet
