Yeah, the 9800 pro is faster.

The 9800 has 8-pixel pipeline architecture, the 9600 only has 4. this makes a fair difference at high resolutions.

The 9800 Pro is obviously better, but for just video editing and not gaming, I don't think its a big difference to kick yourself over

9600 XT is better for the money
9800 Pro performs better, but doesn't overclock or underclock itself when neccesary - XT models do this
