um I have a 6600gt By MSI 8x agp ver. on my main comp, and i like that, but i've never had a 9800pro, so i couldnt tell you what I liked better, I just know that my 6600gt with the thermaltake Giant on it, preforms very well!
I would say either MSI or ASUS makes the best 6600gt...

Definatly the GF6600GT. About twice as fast. Infact, in current games, it's just about as fast as a GF6800 - unless you have insainly high resolutions though.

Also, has support for Shader Model 3, that is not in any ATI card yet (Full DirectX 9.c support)

Actually beats the flagship ATI X800XT at call of duty. Not bad for the price.
