I've heard that the 6600gt is better but is this right?

The 9800xt has 256mb, 256bit whereas the 6600gt has 128mb and 128bit.

Which is better?

there pretty much neck and neck . personally i would pick the 9800xt for the extra memory
Wow, 9800. I has the pro 128mb version but it broke down a year ago.

The 6600 is the mid-range card that was the generation after the 9800, I don't know the specifics (I had a 9800, why would I need a silly new graphics card :) ) but usually in that situation the two have roughly equal performance. In other aspects like power consumption and noise then the mid-range card is likely to be better.

Either way though, both will be inadaquate for new games.

That's assuming this is the Radeon 9800 from 3-4 year ago and not the new Geforce 9800 that's just being released.
depends on what its to be used for
Gaming at low resoloutions/ whatever settings I can get games to run smoothly on.

I've bought/ in the process of buying a 9800XT from OV3RCLOCK3R .

Wonder what settings Crysis will play on lol.
It is close, you can see the 9800 pro vs 6600GT here:


The 9800XT was slightly faster than the 9800 pro but not much, also worth bearing in mind that the 6600 supported Shader Model 3.0, the 9800 series only supported up to SM2.0
