There is very little in it, but I would go for 6600gt (a very good card).

What you want the machine to do,if you are into gaming then it has to be the 6600gt but there won't be a great deal of noticable difference anyway.

The 6600gt's the faster card, ignore the amount of memory. You'd probably notice a difference in recent games if you compared the two side by side. Price difference should be about £25.

Have to agree with the others the GT is the better card of the two.

the 6600gt is good enough. you don't need the ultra unless you got the extra cash.
