    I tried fixing the Gigabyte link, but it still seems to take me to Microsoft.com.

    The X800GTO is a more powerful card, but it's also significantly more expensive. If you're willing to pay more for it, that's fine, but you might get more bang for your buck out of a 6600GT.

    Also, I see no reason to restrict yourself to those particular manufacturers. Sapphire is my personal favorite, but there are, arguably, better brands than Gigabyte for nVidia cards.

    if i were you id go for atleast the 6800, that compairs with the x500 better than the 6600 if your willing to go for the x500. the 6800 and x500 are about the same price but in my opinion the 6800 is better. but if the choices are x500 and the 6600 then go with the x500

    i would advise you to go for the nvidia graphics cardd mainly for 4 reasons fristley the graphics card is cheaper secondly it is a good make nvidia wich means you can trust it alot thirdly it is a unnoticibale diffrence from a 128 and a 256 and fourthly nvidia is a good card for overclocking

    Depends on cash really. Not sure how much the X800 is but it sounds like alot more than the 6600 GT. If so maybe you should compare it vs the 6800 GT depending on your budget. Brand wise i like sappire for ATI, and BFG for Nvidia.

    Well there are some good results on turning certain X800Gto's into XT's with a fairly straight-forward bios editing software. Though I havent heard anything on the Sapphire cards, I believe the GeGube ones were having the best success in doing so. I'll look for the link toomorrow morning. It might even be on the home page...

    x800GTO Would be the best choice and if you willing to spend it, however If you have an SLI motherboard, you could pair 2 6600GTS, Or Try a 6800, stock, there are some mods to unlock the pipelines in it. The 6800 also supports Shader 3.0.
