If you need to upgrade now the best option would be something from the 7800 line if you can afford it. Prices may be coming down a bit when the 7900 is released soon. 6600gt isn't that bad of a card depending on what you are playing.

I'd get the 7800gt as a minimum then.

The 6800gs is a better card than the 6800gt (both pci-e). The clock speeds and other improvements more than make up for the difference in pipes.
