If you want a bit more, look towards either a 6200 or, if you're not afraid to look into ATI, a Radeon 9600XT.
You don't need to purchase a 6600 to play Doom3.

I'm just pointing out that you don't need to shell 140$ out for a 6600 to play Doom 3.
Way slow and ancient both the fx5200 and 5500 are complete rubbish.

Perhaps a 6200 then, if you want more out of the game =]

whats the difference betweeen 6800 gs gt and ultra?
1. Never buy anything lower than 6600 for gaming. 6600GT is excellent choice - latest technology with Shader Model 3.0, best cost/performance ratio.
6800GT is not produced anymore, it is based on 6800 card, it can not be overclocked well BUT can have quads and vertex units unlocked.
6800GS is newer technology, emits less heat, can't be unlocked BUT can be overclocked very well and this is the card to get. Some say 6800GS is based on same technology as 7800 it just has quads and vertex units properly locked (in hardware, unlockable by RivaTuner).
6800Ultra is probably old 6800GT just clocked even higher.

The 6800 gs is actually the best bang for the buck right now for a gamer. They only run $190-$230 depending if you want stock speeds or overclocked.
The 6800gt is actually a one of a kind card. When it came out everyone had to buy it or either the ultra. Since it was an underclocked 6800 ultra, everyone went for it. The ultra was just 10% faster. The 6800gt is a fast card and you can still buy it. The 6800 gs would be the better one to buy because it is cheaper than the gt.
The 6800gt is actually a hardcore overclocker because I have one. My stock speeds was 350mhz/1.00 ghz
I have flashed the bios on mine to a ultra before and then flashed it back to the gt.
With the gt bios I have gotten to 425mhz/1.20ghz and still could of went a few more mhz. I usually keep it at 400mhz/1.20ghz and it does perfect with no artifacts and it doesnt get too hot. I have an aftermarket cooler called arctic cooler nv5 silencer rev3.
The 6600gt is an okay card but it isnt the best deal. The 6800gs is the best deal right now and it is twice as fast as the 6600gt for like 20-30 dollars more.
Something is wrong if you get a 6600gt 128mb for $195 when you can get a 6800gs 256mb twice as fast for same price or $10 more lol...
