For each architecture there must be a balance between the core and the mem frequency,there is no standard ratio across all the boards.
Back to the point, the 6600 is lots better. I'd recomend you the 6600 DDR2 wich boasts more mem bandwith due to higher mem frequency than the usual 6600. It's been noticed that the old 6600 is quite mem bandwith limited, so in this case they chose to boost only the mem freq. I think there's not much of a difference (price wise) between the old 6600 and the 6600 DDR2.
