is it really worth upgrading a 6600 256mb AGP to a 7600 GT 256mb AGP?

No! Save the money for you next system. The cost of the 7600 GT for AGP will land you an even better PCI-E card. So save the money.

It depends on the rest of your PC, if you have a socket 939 or 775 CPU then I would replace the motherboard to PCI express, see for details...

edit - socket 478 also have PCI-e options

Depends what you expect.

A 7600 GT will give you a big boost in many games over the 6600 GT... and might even pet you play many games at 1280x1024. However, if you plan to play next-gen titles at high res and full detail, think again.

A $180-ish X1950 PRO would make more of a difference, but you might be better off investing in a PCIe Core2 Duo system at this point...
