The 9800PRO is old, slow, and overheats incredibly easily. Not a good choice.
Go for the 6600GT. It leaves the 9800 in dust in benchmarks, and is about the same price as well.
I didn't make it!
He said hes getting the 6600 not the GT... but you SHOULD get the GT its only about £10 more and more futureproof and better
My point exactly. ;)
Most 6600GT packages also come with a bunch of free gear too. (I know the XFX one does...)
(I know the XFX one does...)
The XFX didnt work on my PC and now im stuck with a Asus 5900 128mb. Be sure it works with youre mobo
grab the 6600
Concerning my own experiences, i can't recommend the Radeon 9800pro. I'd definitely buy the 6600GT instead of the 6600! So i guess your friend has a mainboard using AGP graphic cards. I don't know if it makes much sense to pay too much money for a AGP card, because they are dying out soon anyway, but a very good choice for AGP cards is the ATI X800GT 256mb. But the price is about 170,00€.
Even though I am a ati fan, I would go with a 6600 and if you can 6600gt so you have up to date tech. :)
9800 overheats bad and will go out in a year, most of them do. Then its very old, very old. Get the 6600 since its only 1 year old now, doesn't burn up, and a tad faster. But if you can save up for a 6800GT. Be a lot better to get since the new games wont run that well on a 6600...
