Now tell me, why does it HAVE to be ATI? nVidia makes comparable cards, no question, and most people here will tell you that they are better (they are IMHO).

For the record, I never buy anything over $25 from Best Buy after the Wet Car Stereo Incident (I'm pretty sure I've told it here before).

I don't want my Revolution and Xbos360 to be alone in ATI Land.

That and I don't really like Nividia
