    Wondering which card is the better one of the two.

    I'm looking to buy a USED video card for around 60-70 bucks.

    So i wanna know what would be best bet.

    thank you, recommend any other cards.

    Its a difficult Choice.
    I would go for the 6600 and OC it a lot and also because it has p.s. 3.0 and its Nvidia.

    I've seen benches say the 6600GT is much better than the 9800 Pro. But I also heard that you can overclock the 6600's GPU to 500 MHz completely safe. Memory is a bit slow so don't expect to play with AA enabled and maintain good framerates.

    if you NEED AA or AF, go with the 9800pro, otherwise, OC the hell out of the 6600 and be happy.
