ummmmm the 9800 gt is the better of the two but neither are good for gaming..... at least not newer games, if you want a good gaming card your gonna have to spend at least $100

Of course a 9800gt is still good for gaming, it will play all games. You make it sound like they will not run any newer games which is totally not true at all.

I've only just recently switched from a 9600gt and that was able to play ALL games at good 1920x1080 with max settings(except gta iv and crysis) and with the 9800 being slighty better than 9600 then performance will be good.

Answering the op question the 9800 is far better than the 220 and you will be able to play all games at a decent rate.

I will have to disagree, both cards will perform well, but the GT 220 is much better than the 9800 as you see here: Power Trip vs here: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT: supercharge your graphics horsepower with this GPU at the perfect price and performance combination.
You'll be able to play new games on medium settings on a Full HD screen.

Coolness that Nvidia link to the GT 220 is nothing but pure marketing BS, there is no way that that card is better than a 9800 GT. In fact,

Please show me one test where the GT 220 beats a 9800 GT.

LOL, stormy, Diffirent site's, diffirent reviews. And Nvidia cant lie on the basic specs like GPU core speed and RAM speed. Theese things are higher in the 220. And why would they unmarket their own product?

It may have higher speeds, but it is still a lot slower than the 9800. You don't get mid-high end performance from a low end card.

Since you're still sticking with DX10, why don't you go for the 4770. It's cheap...well it's very cheap when on sale where I live...otherwise the 4770's pricing is pretty much the same as the 9800GT or $10 more thereabouts.

Or consider the 5750 or just wait for Nvidia to release their Fermi cards
