Once you unlock the pipes and overclock it then it will be close, but once you add overclocking to the 7800GS it overtakes the 6800GS significantly. Plus the 7800GS has a better feature set.

As for the original question, if it has to be 6600GT or 6800GS, then 6800GS. If you have a couple extra bucks the 7800GS.
