The 6600GT is a better card. It utilizes the faster DDR3 vs the 6600's DDR.
Keep checking back... the NVidia Gurus will have far more to offer for recommendation

Post your budget so they can help you key in on the best for the money.

Online sites here in the US have 6800 series for under 175$, which would be better than a 6600gt. I know that being in a different country normally puts the prices higher in comparison but if you could find somebody w/a 6800 I'd suggest getting it.

Get the asus 6600gt, because of it being a TOP edition and having GDDR3 with is way better than reg DDR. its worth the extra mula

Perhaps try Ebay for a good second hand card if your on a budget, say a FX5900 ultra or Fx5950 ultra both capable cards for someone on a budget.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Creative-Blast...ayphotohosting

Even on ebay now the fx5900 ultra and 5950 are way over priced for what they are now. Get yourself a 6600gt and leave the rest behind.

the 6600GT is definately a good card and a good choice for a budget/performance system.

usually you can get by with a good 350w psu for a 6600GT. your 400w will probably be fine as long as it has enough amps on the 12v rail.

looking at your rig your best bet would be to upgrade your psu as your cpu is already oc'd .
