Hey, new to the forums, but which card is better? ATI AIW 9800 PRO or the nVidia 6600 GT? (AGP 8x) please.

I seen a nice discount website and they were both the same price so they are probably about the same, maybe some performance diffences on some games.

The 9800PRO is better, the 6600 may have higher frequencies and DDR2/DDR3, but that will make no difference at all since its only available with 64/128bit memory buses.

I'll tell you honestly to look up some reviews on the 6600GT. it blows any version of the 9800 out of the water.

BTW this is easly proven here on the site. check out the 3Dmark sticky. in there you will see the scores every one has gotten. you will eventualy come to my scores and notice my 6600GT beats all the 9800's

We arent talking about the X800 series at all

And im sure the General will be able to blow most of yalls 6600gt's out, and when i get my new mobo, then I can join in.

thats a great score, but how much of an over clock ya got on it?

my stock aqm3 score is only 6000 less than your score there if I was to oc I would almost bet Id beat it.

Hmm you now have me tempted to reOC my 6600GT.
when I did it just for giggles I got nearly a 1000 mark increase in 3dmark03.

kina curious what that would come out like in some thing not nearly as intence.

It does use a 128bit memory bus, but the card is designed differently, it's some kind of hybrid. The 6600GT will totally and completely OWN a 9800pro.

Every review I have read puts the 6600GT way ahead of the 9800pro.
