Go for the 9600xt w/256mb if you wanna spend a little $20 more on your video card.

What about the 6600 series from Nvidia? 199 for the 6600gt looks pretty good

9800 PRO. Easy! You'd be crazy to get a 9600 over the 9800. More MB doesn't mean anything.

Depends on the games you get. Some games live off of graphics RAM, they beg you for more. Some games don't really mind so much. Memory isn't everything, but it's certainly a major factor.

9800 Pro. No need for 256 MB (yet). You can check the performance difference yourself here: http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/20031229/index.html

the 9800pro has a faster core clock (i think hehe). if im wrong, why not buy the 9600xt, if theres no need for it yet, when yet comes you will have need for it for $20 more

If you can Oc the 9600 to a 9800 you get 128mb or ram for only $20. Thats good if you can get the proper cooling in it:D
