I'd say ask for a 6800GS, and then if it's too expensive say that u will pay the rest. It's an awesome card and only about $200.

Depends on what you're looking for. If you want to game, 6600GT. If you usually have a lot of processes open like I do, then get 512MB RAM and the 6600.

No, RAM rarely bottle-necks graphics cards.
