I guess it depends on what you want to do. It's a better choice than the 6200 (which is a decent business/web-surfing/word-processing vid card, but not much beyond that) but you really haven't told us what you plan to do, and what your target budget is. It also does depend a bit on what monitor you have and the resolution you normally run at, especially if you game.
If you're a heavy gamer, an nForce 6800GT card is probably still the best bang-for-buck, there are plenty used available on Ebay and other sources. There are also a fair number of closeout deals on ATI Radeon X800/X850 series AGP cards from online e-tailers.
If you want a gaming-on-a-budget card, an nForce 6600GT card is good budget choice, and has the plus of better video playback capabilities than the nForce 68xx cards while being cheaper, though not as fast in games.
Finally, if your gaming is limited to titles that aren't 3D-intensive, and the rest of your time is spent surfing, watching video, or in regular business apps, the Geforce 6600 you chose is a decent card. It will still run most 3D game titles but you may have to lower your resolution to 800x600 in some cases, or turn off visual features for best results.
