Default which gfx card

recently, my 6800GT crashed.
i returned that beast to the job, but they need some time now ...

As they have no NX6800GTs in stock, i'm now hoping to
get money back, and i need to order a new card for pc.
atm i have a g4mx460, which totally sucks.

i've found to cards that fit may fit my requirements:

albatron 6800 128mb PCIe
gainward 6600 gt 128 mb GS (540MHz core, dunno how much mem clk) PCIe

(both are 83)
i have an asrock 939DUAL w/ PCIe slot (just if you are curious).

i will mainly use the card to play ut2k4, but sometimes also Q4
(and nexuiz, which isn't the problem)
my preferred resolution is 1280x1024/32

i don't give a **** about AA & AF

which card should i get?

A geforce6600gt / 6800(gt) aren't bad choices. Recently Nvidia released the Geforce7600GS which is faster than a 6600gt and a Geforce7600GT which is as fast a 6800gt. Both cards have decent prices and might be even cheaper than a new 6800gt.

I'm aware of that. but i think i'm i need of bying a new card when
ut2k7 is released. so i need an interim solution till ut2k7 arrives, cause i fear i need a 8800 or something for ut2k7.

So i do not want to spend more then 85.

the cheapest 7600gs i could find is ~ 100 (including shipping)
though maybe i could get a better price for it on ebay.

Do you have any benchmarks hat compare these cards?

primary:
6600gt PCIe 128mb
6800 PCIe 128mb
maybe also includes:
7600gs PCIe 256mb
