    The Radeon 9800 Pro is easily the better of the two. No question. Just read a review, there are plenty out there.

    Edit: If you can fork out 40 more for a geforce 6800 it would greatly improve your gaming experience.

    Agreed, on both accounts. A regular 6800 is amazing if you can afford it, but a 9800 Pro is definitely your choice if you can't.

    What about the 6800LE is that a better card than the 9800 and the fx5900

    It should be, but it should also be a lot more expensive. If memory serves, the 6800LE is a regular 6800 with only 8 pixel pipelines. You can look up some test if you want, but I can tell you right now it's probably not worth the money it costs, or at least it wouldn't be in the U.S. It's somewhere around $250 while a 9800 Pro is $200 and a regular 6800 is around $270, and prices are likely similar for you.

    Nah, the 6800LE is actually priced at 133, same as a 9800 Pro (www.order247.co.uk).

    Edit: It appears the 6800LE is clocked down to 300\700, ive seen 1 or 2 models with 320mhz core speed but those were in OEM PCs and not retail cards.

    9800 Pro or 6800LE. Depends what games you play, and what settings you use, because the 9800 Pro is better in some games and 6800LE is better in others.
    Look at this review: http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/gffx/nv43-p05.html (ignore the 6600 for now, because its not an AGP card yet) and you'll see what i mean. For me, the 6800's shadermodel 3.0 support decides it, but that may not be important to you.
