Well, for one thing, they use 2 different slots...the 6600GT is PCI-Express, and the 9800 Pro is AGP, you have to see what slot your motherboard has first. If you do have PCI-E, then get the 6600GT, as it does perform better than the 9800 Pro.

Yea, they have them, just checked Newegg and they're there. Make sure your motherboard is AGP first though...

Word is don't get the PCIe yet, wait a while. Seems it's not fully optimized yet, you'd get better system performance from an AGP card still.
