    Default 9600xt vs 9800 pro?

    I already own a 9600 XT, I am wondering if it would be worth spending the 124 bucks and getting a 9800 pro. I mainly want better performance on games like half life 2 and doom 3.

    It is an improvement, although a geforce 6600GT would be a better choice.

    My suggestion, save your money and wait for a while untill you have enough for a 6600GT
    if you get the 9800pro you will be waisting your money, $130 for a minimal increase. Not worth it IMO.

    I am in a worse spot than you ATM, I only have a MX440 and I need about 100-150 more for my 6800GT. So I cant play Doom3, HL2(not well anyway), or many games period. Wait on it is all I am going to say.

    I agree. A 9800 Pro is pretty much wasted money as an upgrade from a 9600XT. The 6600GT is about the minimum for a worthy upgrade from a 9600XT.
