    Sell your 6600 and it will ease the pain. Good upgrade but AGP means you are paying a premium.

    GTO isn't any better than a 6600GT is it? You should look at a 6800GS, or wait for the rumoured 7800GS AGP to appear maybe.

    I'd have thought that the X800GTO would be the better card, and it would be worth doing if you sell the 6600gt to help make up the difference. You'd notice the difference at higher res with extra eye candy turned on.

    Anybody know if the AGP GTO's can be softmodded to 16pp???

    The X800GTO is faster than a 6600GT.
    Havent heard of any AGP cards modding to 16 pipes though.
