GDDR3 is Graphical Double Data Rate memory, 3 being the 3rd revision. Video cards usually either use regular DDR (slow) or GDDR3 (high end cards) but SOME (X1300 512MB comes to mind) use GDDR2 which never really caught on for whatever reason. Basically its VERY fast ram but is also expensive, over half of a modern video card's production cost can be just the cost of the RAM itself! Also, MAC edition cards refer to the ability to work in a MAC computer which I believe use different standards so I would stay away from those unless you are putting this into a MAC lol. Anyways, a 6600GT is a VERY nice card and as soon as you tell me what your motherboard supports (it supports 133, yes, and you said it does NOT support 400 but it may still support 200/233/266/300/333 etc. There are tons of RAM speeds and I want to get you the fastest you can get, you won't regret it.
