The Radeon 9800 Pro is better than the 6600 GT.

agreed, it overclocks just as well if not better too. specially the eVga ones. the 9800PRO is getting old fast, soon games will start killing it, and a while from now it'll start being un-supported.

Go to many benchmarking sites and there are a few where the 9800pro but it starts to die when AA and AF is upped although generally I know ATI does better with AA than nvidia. Overall the 6600GT beats out the 9800Pro though.

4W4K3, I OC'd mine to 570/999 but I started noticing textures blinking a little within far cry. Haven't tried other games, but as of right now I don't think the core wants to really go above 550 or so, and the memory probably around 960, around there I think on higher 1280x1024 settings with 2x AA, and AF that it was still blinking. I gotta wait until I can get a good water cooling setup, get the MAZE4 GPU block, and some tweakmonster RAMsinks and no doubt it'll probably OC better.

are you on stock air cooling or an aftermakret cooler? i'm sure with a maze4 on water it'll do good...those are pretty awesome blocks from what i've read.

Stock with a home made PCI fan below it lol.

About 53-55C idle and 80-83C full load according to Rivatuner for the core.

This is the record of my 3dmark03 benches thus far:

Stock @ DDR400 - 7530 - 3dmark03

Stock @ DDR470 - 7555 - 3dmark03

555/999 @ DDR470 - 8247 - 3dmark03

550/1003 @ DDR400 - 8192 - 3dmark03
