yep, there is a 9800se (sucks bad), a normal 9800, a 9800 pro (best bang for the buck), and a 9800xt (WAY overly priced for the performance)

go with the 9800 pro and you won't regret it, but try to get one that is 256-bit. it'll cost a wee-bit more but will give you great performance.

well im deciding. I want the 6800 to play games like half life 2, and counter-strike source, but ive heard those games were built for ATI's...

So im not sure. I'm deciding between the 6800 and the 9800 pro, reccomendations?

All though I prefer ATI my self The 6800 is in a different
category so I would have to painfully (just kidding) recommend the 6800
