The 6600GT and the x700 both have 8 pixel pipelines however the 6600GT's core runs 100MHz faster and the GT's memory runs over 300MHz faster than the ATi. Both support DirectX9. The ATi Supports OpenGL 2.0 and the GT only supports OpenGL 1.5

What's more important to what your using with it, pure speed or compatability with any OpenGL games you might have?

They come pretty close though. The 6600GT is also more money though.

The 6600 GT is faster in most games. I would go for it. Also, comparing clockspeeds between ATI and Nvidia is not a very accurate mode of comparison (it's like comparing AMD clockspeeds to Intel clockspeeds).

That's true, but I was trying to find something to differentiate them without looking like an extreme ATi hater.
