Question Which BFG GFX Card?

Hello hello! I will soon be purchasing a new (AGP) GFX card, mine is holding me back a bit in gaming. I currently have an ATi Radeon 9800 Atlantis. I have my eyes set on two different gfx cards and i'm not too sure which of them to go with.

http://www.bfgtech.com/6600GT.html <<I'm leaning toward this...

http://www.bfgtech.com/6800OC.html

I do understand somewhat the differences in these cards, but I'm quite new to hardware of any type for computers. Whaddya say?

Thanx a bunch!

P. S. the above cards meet my budget, i can't really go higher unless i actually get a job :-p

Ah someone who wants to abandon ATI... and go for a quality option. That's understandable. I would go with the 6800 OC.

Yeah; I would go with the 6600. The clockspeeds, shame it only has 128Megs but they both have that so its not a defining difference, the rest is the same but the the 6800 is a low end version of the high end range slightly overclocked; the 6600 is a high end version of a high end range. The different in clock would be noticable.
