Default 9800gt vs gtx 260

quick question: how much of a difference is there between a 9800gt and a gtx 260 @1080p and is it worth another 100$ for all the little nvidia bonuses

yes, it's worth it for a GTX 260 C216 over a 9800GT. the GTX 260 is about twice as powerfull.

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
