There is no need to make 2 threads on something.

You must be for specific when talkig about this. The 6800 is acctualy better line.

thats not very fair, try matching the x800 against the 6800 instead, thats not a very fair fight, unles your gonna take a 9800pro 256 against a stock 6800 128mb.

I recently bought a Radeon 9800 XT and have came to the desision that I wont ever but ATi again untill they hire some programmers to make drivers. In short I say go GeForce.

I think this is slightly pointless. The 9600 and 9800 are ATI's older line of graphics cards, so comparing them to nVidia's 6200 or 6800 series is pretty harsh.

Anyway, although nVidia had a hard time (In my opinion, failed. Especially in DirectX 9 comparisons) keeping up with ATI's 9500 through to the 9800XT through the use of the doomed GeForce FX (5th geforce series) they have came out and compleatly walked all over ATI with the 6200 through to the 6800 series of GPU's (keep in mind that the 6200 is in comparison with ATI's low range GPU's - the X300 and X600, while the 6800 is in direct competion with ATI's X800 and above).

Anyway, if you are concerned about cost, go for a geforce 6600GT. It is roughly twice as fast as a ATI 9800xt and currently ATI has no direct competion against it (although some regard the X700 as the competion against the 6600(GT) - where the 6800GT also wins here hands down).

Keep in mind that there is a pretty large difference between the 6600 and the 6600GT performance wise. the PC- Express version is also, by default, slightly higher clocked and results in a slight performance boost over the AGP version.

Oh, an added benfit also is that the Geforce 6 series of cards support the latest DirectX 9.C specifications and some likely future ones too, while the ATI X series of cards only support DirectX 9.(I think B - Definatly not as recent as the Geforce 6 series)

First off, I have an MSI 6600gt with a thermaltake giant on it, and it just plain rules.. but On my secondary computer I have a 9600 pro 256mb with a huge all copper zalman on it, and Im srry to break this to you, i;ll even compare benchmarks with a 6200 owner but my 9600pro would own your pathetic 6200, and besides, the 6200's are very prone to crashing, or at least for the people that i talk to.

I did not compare the 6200 to the 9600pro, I did not even mention I own one, read my post. I compared the GF6 series to the Radeon X series.

Anyway, the 6200 is the lowest of the 6 series, and if it were to be compared to ATI's previous generation cards, it would be in the same league as the 9200 not the 9600, especially the pro version.

connchri-

"(keep in mind that the 6200 is in comparison with ATI's low range GPU's - the X300 and X600, while the 6800 is in direct competion with ATI's X800 and above)."

I did however, and correctly pointed out that a GF 6600GT is about twice the speed as a Radeon 9800xt.
