The 275 is wwaaaay more powerful. However why are you comparing the 2? They are from very different generations.

thanks guys!

I am comparing the two because the ATI came with the computer, and I just bought the GTX off a friend, just wanted to make sure it was more powerfull before I put it in

Yea by like twice! It does not support the new DX11 like the ATI but when you figure how much faster it is it still makes it the better choice to game with by far!
