well it should handle a 6600GT... but I wouldn't plan on OC'ing too...

but the 6600GT would be the best card to get

If your PSU doesnt undervolt.. at least not too much, then you should be fine. You might be able to OC a bit as well. When I had first bought one of my 6800gt's I was running a Antec True 380w.. and it handled it just fine. Also, depends on how much stuff you are running in your comp as well.
