The stupid myth of the 9800 should left to die in peace (It has lived well and should pass gracefully)
No longer is the 9800 series a good card..... No matter what is done it is too old, sure it took Nvidia down a couple of pegs but that time is over....
6600Gt is the better bang for buck right now, but unfor... bang for buck is a case for convience sure you might get alright performance for now but in about a year or so you be investing in the next bang for buck... My advice invest in a 6800 or gt model that will have you set for a couple of years..
Me, i'd invest in the 7800gt when the price settles down (i ain't rich though) don't worry about anything for about 3-4 years.
There are only Two things in life i regret doing... 1. Selling my Soul for Cash.... 2. Buying a Compaq.... I should have kept the Cash, huh.
