    well............. a 6600gt has ddr3 while 7600gs has ddr2, but the 6600gt has a slower core-clock, a 7600 gt(PCI-e) costs abt 11k, dunno abt gs.

    6600GT 128MB second hand around 5k

    with such a low end card 256mb hardly matters. 512mb doesn't exist for this card.

    alternately try 1600pro
    __________
    7600GT agp will soon come

    any person who is selling second hand in the forums, look up different forums or computer dealers.
    probably 5-6k if you are lucky

    i think 128 MB 6600 GT is the best option for your configuration

    For the past 1 week I've been searching for 7600gs or gt AGP version with every single vendor in Lamington road, Mumbai (which is supposed to be the best place for availability of any PC related stuff) but no one has a AGP version of the 7600gs or gt.
    In Lamington road the (Forsa 7600GS PCI-e version) costs 6.5k, the AGP version (IF you can find one) will cost ATLEAST a 1.5 - 2k more.

    You can buy the nVIDIA 6200 which can play most of the new games today and costs around 4.5K. But you will be able to play the games at the lowest resolutions and all the fancay stuff off.

    shhhh!!!!! on a sniper point
    U can also search ATI X800. Any low end X800 would do nd would be better than a 6600GT. But finding it on AGP would be hard.
