Default Geforce 6600LE or Raedon 9800 PRO?

Hey guys,
I'm just going to do a minor upgrade of my gfx card so i can play some of the latest games decently, like bf2, bf2142, etc.
I'm buying from ebay, and have an extremely tight budget.

Would it be better to buy a Geforce 6600LE or a Raedon 9800 PRO, both are about the same price.

Let me know asap thanks!

- Michael -

i just got the N6600LE from ASUS and its fricken awesome! it killed my ATI Redeon 9250 by 4500 points in 3DMark 03. i would recommend that one

and if ur new at OCing, it gives u a prog to do it and adjusts everything for u.

Sorry the X1600 is a little out of my budget....

Im leaning more towards the 6600LE.

what is ur budget?? if u tell us ur budget we might be able to choose for u a better card for the same price.

by the way 6600LE is not good card it is worser than normal 6600, try atleast to get normal 6600 or get even better 6600GT.
