I have a backup rig that used to have an 8800gtx but I gave it to a friend. What is the best card I can put in this system and have the least amount of bottlenecking occur. E6600 clocked at 3.0ghz, maybe I can take it higher. Would a 460 be ok? 260?

Nice hairsplitting over semantics, but you know what he means.
I wouldn't go beyond a GTX 460 or GTX 550 Ti. Even those won't play at their full potential, but bottlenecking is hard to prove or appreciate without side-by-side comparisons with a more powerful CPU.
