Get the GT. People say the normal 6600 is a waste of money, and that the GT is infinitely better, but I wouldn't know.

Loads of people say the 6600GT is a beast, anyway.

6800gt is MUCH better than 6600gt, check out the pipeline diff etc etc, it costs a lot more as well :P 6600gt is for the budget friendly but it's still among the decent video cards of today.. but i highly suggest 6800gt at LEAST for the new wave of games coming in from october 18 - christmas
