i would still take the 6600GT over the 6800 unless you can OC very well and are lucky enough to be able to unlock the pipes on the 6800. I would recomend the 6600GT. more bang for the buck.

Hey Dutch,

When i first joined this forum, the first question i asked is the exact same question your asking now; 9800 pro or 6600GT.

Im soooo glad i picked the 6600GT over the 9800 pro, and after reading that link someone posted comaparing the two cards i was convinced about the 6600GT.

You won't regret it.
