The Nvidia drivers are generic - i.e. one driver runs all graphics cards.
There isn't a driver for a 6600, another for a 6600GT, another for a 7800,

Basically, pick a card which you can afford and is relatively recent, and
you should have little issue with drivers. Over the years I have used a
GeForce4400Ti, a 6600GT and now a 7800GS+. No problems, although you may
balk at the price of some of them.
