Default 6600 GT vs 9800 Pro

The title says it all. Which would be better for gaming in your opinions (or fact!)

I've owned both of these cards and I would say the 6600 GT is better IMO.

6600 GT is not only faster, but it has Pixel Shader 3 which is the technology being used to develop future games. No ATI has it at this moment, so basically all ATIs are oudated pieces of crap.
