Hi, I was wondering, whats a better buy - the 9700pro, or the 9800np? I know the np can be flashed easily to a pro, but you have to be lucky and get decent RAM. They are almost dead even in benchies, with the 9700p usually taking a very slight lead. Thanks.

Well divide the $$ cost by the freq.. to get the cost per mhz. I would go for the 9800 unless the 9700 is wayyyy cheaper. I have had both and they are both good. The 9800 is more overcloackable, generally speaking.
