    Get the 6600GT. Although I'm an ATI fen, i think the GT would be better choice.

    The 6600GT is so much faster that its 128 bit memory bus doesnt really matter. It has GDDR3!!

    I sat on the fence with this one for a bit and I am happy I went with my 9800Pro(now an XT) tho I do think the next gen technology has its advantages

    Get the X800XL if you can spen that.
    If your budget is around the 250, go for the 6800LE

    A 3000+ 64bits AMD will do.
    Take with that a nice ASUS mobo deluxe, and you're on your way.
    (with 400MHZ ram ofc)
    If you buy new ram, go to a shop and buy the value select 2X512, chances are to almost an 100% that it will be indenticals (Twinx). Good for dual channel:)
    Then buy some cheap passive ram-cooling.

    My bro got a +3200, went from 2.0GHZ to 2.5GHZ stable (increased volt to 1.7,ram to 2.7, stock cooling) I wanted to go higher, but my bro was afraid:p

    My guess is he could have taken it to 2.7, but that was pushing it + shortening the live of the CPU drastic.

    But a +3000 should be able to run@2.1/2.2GHZ without a prob.
