I was wondering which would be better in the AGP version. Thanks.

If the 6800NU is within your budget ($250 in the US) and availability, get that instead. But if I had to choose between the 6600GT or 6800LE I would go with the 6800 because I would probably be able to unlock it and oc a bit. But at stock speeds, the 6600GT will most likely beat the 6800LE in gaming with no AA or AF.

The 6800LE is better ONLY IF YOU UNLOCK IT.

Just some info for those who may not know, the GeForce 68000NU or Non-Ultra boasts the same GPU as the 6800GT/Ultra. That is, the NV40-A1 core. But that's where the smilarities end. The 6800NU has 12 Pixel Pipelines and 5 Vertex Processors (12x1, 5vp) whereas the GT and Ultra have 16 Pixel Pipes and 6 VP's (16x1, 6vp). Now the 6800LE or Light Edition has only 8 PP's nd 4 VP's. I hope that helps a little.
Note: The GPU's on the 6800NU and LE's may have damaged Pixel Piplines and or Vertex Proccessors. It's a hit-or-miss when trying to unlock these masked bits. I got luck with my eVGA 6800NU, no artifacting, good GPU.
