In low range graphics cards, 256mb wont be any help.

So are you looking for a $50 card or a $100 card?

Also go to school and learn punctuation and how to spell....

Well a 6600GT would be OK, the 128MB Version is quite good
The 6800GS's are doing very well at the moment, i'd recommend one.

I would wait and save your money. After you end up buying that card (6600GT), after Christmas it will be way behind. Just wait for prices to come down, they will in they next few weeks.

If you're gonna go the 6600 way then get the 6600GT, is only a small amount more and it preform's much better than a plain 6600
