It depends on what games you will be playing. If you are a Doom 3 buff, then I would suggest the 6600GT, because that card competes with even the X800 pro in that game. However, if you are a HL2 buff, I might suggest getting an X700 Pro. Lemme tell ya, HL2 owns Doom 3. The 9800 Pro is a good card, but its starting to become yesterday's news.
