Default 9600xt or 9800pro or other?

Alright I want to get a sub $90 graphics card and figured I would get a refurb from newegg since I have heard most people say refurb from newegg usually works and I trust newegg. I could get a 9600xt or 9800pro or other cards like 6200 (non-tc).

The only comparisons I've seen show the 9800pro being about 1/5 faster but that was with no AA, AF. Was wondering if the 9800pro is the best choice or not?

Also anybody here ever get a refurb from newegg?

The radeon 9800 pro is clearly better then the 9600Xt and the 6200.

I actually don't know why I even used the 6200 as my example of other cards.

If you can spend $160 the 6600GT will blow away the 9800pro

I used to have a 9800 pro but have since upgraded and the 9800 pro is a pretty descent card.
