The 9800 Pro is the better of the two....don't mark my words on this, but I think you'd be better with the 9600XT than the 9800SE. It flat out sucks.

SE is the lower-class, more like a family computer sucks more than a gaming computer. So get XT or Pro, all the way.

XT is horrible value right now...if you are going to do that, get a 6600 GT. 9800 Pro is still a fair card that will run everything up to Half Life 2 without a problem. I don't think it will cut it for "The Lost Coast", and I fear its performance in upcomming games such as Quake 4 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R., which will be optimized for the next gen cards that are yet to be released.
