Default Whats the difference in these video cards

So i am about to buy and nvidia 6600 video card. I can go with the regular (256mb/128bit) card:

msi 128mb: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-146&depa=0

asus 256mb: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...121-179&depa=0

evga 256mb: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-213&depa=0


Or is it worth the price to get the GT version (128mb/128bit):

gigabyte 128mb: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...125-156&depa=0 $186

msi 128mb: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-147&depa=0 $190

evga 128mb: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-214&depa=0 $197

Or would it be worth it to get the VIVO feature:
msi $215: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-150&depa=0

These are the only companies that i would go for since reading posts from this forum and everyone raves about these guys. I think its pretty much b/w MSI and Gigabyte.

So what the best card in the list for gaming plus i am a web developer, i watch movies, you name it, i do it on my pc? Or are there any other recommendations anyone can make.

Sorry about all the links but its the best way for me to show which cards i am talking about.

definitely worth it to get the GT,
but....
see if you can find a 256 mb one before u choose the 128 mb.

But if u can't, go with the GT. a decent card.

See thats the thing, i have yet to find a 6600GT with 256mb or ram. i dotn understand how they can make the regular with more ram than the GT. Anyone know if there even is a GT with 256mb or 256bit?

Whats the difference b/w ddr and gddr3?

is XFX a good video card maker: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...390&CatId=1558

And thats canadian $269 and the store is 20mins from me. Also, how will the display look if i get a DVI to VGA connector, b/c this card only comes with 2 dvi connectors and i have a CRT monitor.

Is leadtek any good at making cards: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...408&CatId=1558

I really am dissapointed with XFX. I would never buy a card for them. YOu can read my full review at http://www.airiox.com/hardware/dec04...00/index.shtml if you would like since I dont have the time to explain it all right now.

Thx, i really appreciate comments like these on different manufactures. It makes it a lot easier to decide which card to buy when the time comes.

I would recommend personally that you get a 128mb card with DDR3, over a 256mb card with DDR. The Asus Pci-E one would probably be a kickass card.
