No, youve got it wrong. The 6600 purely owns the 6600LE. LE stands for light edition. The diff between a 6600 and a 6600GT is that the GT has double the memory speed (1000mhz) and 500mhz core i think, while the normal one has 300mhz on the core and 500mhz on the memory. All three run over a 128bit memory interface, and they all have 8 pixel pipes, except for the 6600LE which has 4.

Due to okay performance, high overclockability, SM3 and other stuff, i would say go for a 6600 256mb.

Also, as I think about it, I dont know what PSU he has. I know its 400+ watt(at least I think), but he has a P4. So I guess keep power consumption in mind too?
Power should not be a problem for any of those cards. The third one is definetly your best bet. x1600 saphire is probably the card I will get too.

I got my 9700pro off ebay, and OCed it can run CS:S at full detail, with HDR but not AA or AF. If I were you, I'd get a 9800pro off ebay (<£70) and OC it a bit for him. That should last him for a year. Alternatively, a 6600 of some kind has SM3 and would do him well, for a little more money.

I would say a X1600PRO is probably his best bet. Even a X1300PRO isn't bad, that should run CS:S.

It only has to last him maybe a year or so before he does a full system overhaul. No preference on brand, although I am more familiar with Nvidia and I get the calls when something isn't working right .

Anyways, enough ramblings, on with the suggestions!

Well for an extra 15 dollars here at Newegg you can have the X1600 PRO AGP : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814241016

Very good budget card that will play the games you want to play fairly easy.
