Default Video card help

What PCI express graphics card do you recommend for $100-150? What do you think about this?

No way, you can do much better than that for that price. Get this X800GTO, it destroys the 6600GT at everything.

The 6600GT will do an adequate job. They're geared for gaming at a lower cost. I think the x800 and the 6600GT give out the same performance, depending on the model. The GTO version is good because of the 256 bit memory architecture.
