Default 9600xt or 9800pro (128bit)

I found this on newegg and I came here to ask if this is a reliable card.

It's hard to sense sarcasm through text.

Ugh... 128 bit memory. I prefer the 256 bit more.

Is there a major performance loss using the 128 bit?

I'm talking about the 9800Pro (128 bit). Is that better than the 9600XT?

I have seen a 9600xt compared to a 9800 Pro (256 bit DDR), and the 9800 Pro have a huge increase in performance and image quality. I have never seen a 128 bit 9800 Pro in action, although it's performance might be degraded, but seeing some benchmarks, it's a "bit" better than the 9600xt.
