9600 Pro is better for gaming... unless you can flash the 9800se into a 9800 non-Pro or Pro.

9600 Pro......if you go for the 9600XT, then just spend another $20 for the 9800Pro, much better value and alot faster

20 more bucks is WORTH IT for the 9800 Pro. That is what I should have done, but with my stupidity.......well........just look at my sig. I made a bad mistake :P

But Im getting the 9800 pro for my birthday (hopefully) so that should help things alot.

But anyways.

GO FOR THE 9800 PRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(try newegg.com for some great deals)
