The 9800XT is better. The 6600 vanilla isnt that good and even gets beaten by the 9600XT in some games. But if you get the 6600GT it would be better than both cards.
Very nice!

Woah, hold the phone here, have you seen the price on the 9800xt, it's insane! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814102355R and thats refurbished! Why not go this way: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121519
or even this way: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102606
Does that help clear things up a bit?

Yeah I know, its crazy. There is a softmod from a 9800pro into a 9800xt guide on this forum. You should do that to your card, if you haven't already done so.

6600gt is roughly the same as a 9800xt; 9800xt will outdo it with eye candy turned up, also the 6600gt can't handle 1600x1200 with heavy AA/AF well (won't fit in the 128M).

The same almost goes for the 9800pro...the three are very close in a lot of runs. Yes the 6600gt will beat them in a lot of places...

Are you planning on upgrading from your 9800pro? Also where are these 9600xt & 9800se? Does the 9800se softmod? I wouldn't spend any money to upgrade a 9800pro unless it was to a x800/x850 series or a 6800gt at the least. Anything less any gains will be less noticeable...
