Cool .:::which Graphic Card ?::.

I was just checkin gout those garphic cards and as you might know I'm into serious gaming and I wanna run future games like HALO 2 full res no problem and About the price I don' really care I care about the better card. So these are the three:

eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Video Card, 128MB GDDR, 256-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP, Model "128-A8-N343-AX" -RETAIL
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-202&depa=0

and

ATI AIW RADEON 9800PRO Video Card, 128MB DDR, 256-bit, DVI/CATV/VIVO, 8X AGP, Model "ALL-IN-WONDER 9800 PRO" -RETAIL
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-297&depa=0

and

XFX nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card, 128MB GDDR3, 128-Bit, Dual DVI, AGP 8X, Model "PVT43AND" -RETAIL
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...150-080&depa=0

As you see right now I have an ATI but I will be OK switching to nVidia. I like both so I just care about the one that gives me the better graphicz.

Thanks guys:beard:

Get the 6600GT, or just save for the 6800GT. The 9800 Pro is starting to show signs of age and the 6800 128MB is crippled, so stay away from it.

The 6800 vs the 9800 is not a fair comparison is it? I mean the 6800 is plainly a higher-end card by 150 bucks if nothing else.

personally I'd take the plain 6800 anyway

It's not really that bad, i mean, i notice a huge difference from 9800 Pro i returned, to the 6800 i bought, by paying an extra $50.

To answer this guy's question [unlike you savages tempting him to buy a 6800GT], the 6800 is alot better than the 9800 Pro. But like what the other savages were saying, get the 6600GT or save up and get the 6800GT.
