no, the 6600GT DESTROYS the 6600 256MB! To some degree, it helps, but not truly.

well IMHO i think the 6600gt is the best card ever created. PRICE VS PERFORMANCE it cannot be beat. the 7800gtx might be better but its also about 2.5 times teh price

Depends really what you're doing with it :P If you have two hundred Flash Animations up, you'll approve of the extra Graphic RAM

I've seen the 6600gt and the x800xl matched up against each other and the x800xl won by a lot. I don't know if you mean the 128mb (because the 6600gt would pwn that) but the x800xl 256mb against the 6600gt 256mb would destroy the 256mb 6600gt. I've test it myself...
if you think i'm lying, just post something and I'll put on some proof.

jac006, u might want to consider this.

"Im on a tight budget , $200 (I know its not much but I neeed something good but can fit in $200 MAX becasue I need to spend more money on other stuff for my computer such as ram and hard drive and like that)"

From what I see u can't get x800xl (256mb) for under $200, but u can get the 6600Gt for something around $150.

Maybe he confused it with 200?

That's possible. But with a budget of $200 I'd say the 6600GT is the best card.
