Default 6600GT or 6800GT?

After spending hours reading the forums for an answer, I was hoping you guys could help me out.

I currently have a Nvidia GeForce4 MX 420 video card and am looking to upgrade. The decision is between the BFG Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT OC and the BFG Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT OC (both 256 MB). It looks like there's maybe $100 difference between the two cards.

I'm running XP w/SP1, P4 2.4 GHz, 1 GB RAM, and I'm pretty sure the MB is AGP friendly. I'm also in the process of buying a Dell 1905FP Ultrasharp 19" LCD monitor (with DVI input).

My main concern is will the P4 and/or 2.4 GHz processor affect the performance of either the 6600 or 6800 card?

Is there another card I'm overlooking that's comparable to the 6600/6800 for a maximum price of roughly $320??? {btw - I'm thinking of eBay prices for brand new stuff - not retail prices} I would rather buy the 6600 GT OC for cost reasons, but if the 6800 GT OC is worth the extra $100 I'm willing to spend the $$$.

Thanks in advance for the input. I appreciate any/all feedback!!!
