How much of a performance difference is there between these cards?

I have a 9800 NP (Dell) and wondered if the price of a 9700np ($200) was more competitive than the ~$300 for the 9800 NP.

From what I have read the 9800np is quite a bit faster than the 9700np. In fact the 9800np is just a bit faster than the 9700 Pro. Take a look in Anand's video articles and he compares a 9700 pro to an 9800pro but the 9800 is clocked at the 9700pro levels. Which is what the 9800 non pro is(clocked about the same as a 9700Pro). Hope I did not confuse you. Just read the articles and you'll have all the info.

If you have no problem over-clocking the 9800 np, then I'd definately say it's well worth the $100 difference.
