The X1600 but you might want to wait for the 256bit version.

The X1600s will have a 256bit bus...at least the XT will...but for now they both only have a 128bit bus.

I'm also trying to pick between a 6600GT and the X1600PRO, I looked everywhere but I can't find benchmarks for the X1600PRO, can someone tell me if the X1600PRO can run FEAR, COD2, Quake 4, and BF2 smoothly? Does it get > 60 FPS in most games? Thanks in advance.
