Nice. Go for it! It's a pretty good deal. Even though the FX series cores are starting to become old and can't compete with the newer series, it's still a nice card. Especially BFG Tech and they're Lifetime warranty.

You should probably wait. It's more economic to wait for the 6600GT to go down in price than spend the money you have on a card that is already breathing its last. This could be some time however. A fair time.

Yeah, it's gonna take time for the 6600 GT to go down. Or wait till the 6950 Ultra goes down and get a 6800 NU or GT since the price will go way down.
