That's too much money for a 6600GT if you are in the USA. The choices are not nearly as good as PCI-e, but you could do better than a 6600GT. X800GTO or 256-bit GF6800 for example.

My first choice for that price = Powercolor X800GTO 256MB; much faster card than a 6600GT: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

Worth $25 more for the XL if you can go that high and it comes back in stock.

The price is right. Personally I think a 6600GT slightly beats it overall.

If you must have NVidia: AVoid the Asus TD 512MB 6800 as it is a crippled 128-bit 6800.

This 256-bit 6800 would be better than a 6600GT at a good price. I can't vouch for the brand though.

Still a little too much money at $140 IMO.

Happy hunting. If $160 is a firm budget, my vote still goes for a X800GTO 256MB (clocked higher than 128MB versions).

I second the notion!

That's only 9 bucks over your budget... I hope you can squeeze that.

I've got one, and on top of that, I recently unlocked the extra 4 pipes, so now its sort of like an X800XL!

The powercolor x800gto has a core clock of 475mhz where as the saphire x800got has a core clock of 400mhz.. but the saphire is $15 dollars more.. is there a reason the powercolor is cheaper that i'm missing? also i heard the saphire has been successfully flashed to 16 pipelines.. have you heard of the powercolor being flashed to 16 pipelines as well?

thnx.

The powercolor makes up for an OC'ed core by having slow RAM. It's reference 400/980 for the Sapphire and wierd 475/900 for the powercolor.

As difficult it will prove to find. TUL (Powercolor) had produced a 16pipeline X800GT both AGP and PCI-E. The problem was the quantities were limited, however if you look hard enough you might be able to find one. Last I saw it retailed around $180 (US) which was some time ago,
so I'm assuming the prices dove a little into your range.
