9800pro vs. 6600GT
hey, i own a 9800pro 128/256bit...it's a great card don't get me wrong...i love it.
but as of right now...the 6600GT is doin' better.
these are just benchmarks off this site...take it or leave it.
BOTH are great cards....but one is better for what you are asking about.
as for upgrading from a 9600....i wouldn't spend that $$ on just a slightly more performance boost....the bang for the buck would have to go to nVidia's 6000's line of cards...whichever one you choose.
if ATI's your route, then prolly an X800 XT PE w/ 16pipelines would be the best choice over 6800 Ultra's.
