they are both old crap, but the 9800pro is much better

both of those cards are outdated, for the price of a 9800pro, you can get a much, much better 6600gt

I know they are outdated. And I know they are crap. At the moment I am very poor, and cannot afford much. I have the 5600 in my computer right now, and my buddy will sell me his old 9800 on the relatively cheap. I dont know if I'm going to get it though. My other friend has the GeForce 6200 128mb DDR3 and it is really nice. I want to get it, and OC it a whole lot. It's an XFX, and it wasnt DOA, so I am very please with it's performance, even though it is hers. Runs Doom 3 great.

ooh

well the 9800pro is much better and you should get it (if it's pro, anything else isn't worth it)

yes go with the 9800 Pro. At least you'll be able to play doom 3 on high at 1024x768.

9800 Pro....although 6600 GT is much much better, but 9800 Pro still holds its own as of now, although I don't know how much longer it will. Runs HL2 great, and does a fair job at Doom 3. My ex-friend ran it at 1280x1024 with a 9800 Pro, no AA of course.
