My question is which card is better overall. I have both cards here with me and I'm thinking of putting the best one in my sisters PC. The asus en6600gt is llike the regular 6600gt but a bit overclocked.

What are you planning on doing with the card?

The 8500gt is a slightly better card, and it has a newer architecture (Unified shaders + DirectX 10)

The card is going to be used more for movies, and some older games like guitar hero legends of rock. I was confused between the two because the 6600 has higher clock speeds and because of the difference between the bandwith speeds and MTexels/s and MPixels/s.

They are both Crap (sorry). Even a GT 520 would be better.

Well i know they are not all that, but they're for my sister's PC. I was just thinking "hey i have a 6600gt it might be faster than her current card" but after all of this searching I was stumped. :D  So i decided to ask the best community :)  I have a 9500gt on my own machine of course :p

Clock speed doesn't mean ANYTHING between different generations of cards. Use the 8500, it has unified shaders, DX10, newer architecture.

Oh I see. Well thanks to you all for the replies and advice. I think this question can be marked as solved. :)
