I would like to retract my previous statement and announce that I am no longer completely bias towards nVidia, Also, I would like to retract the statement that nVidia usually handles AA better than ATI, as I can not prove that for anything in the GTX series above a GTX275. In fact, it would appear the opposite is true (Especially considering price).

I would like to also thank Muffin Man, who, really did not even do much, just called me out and I ended up researching to prove my point and I ended up doing just the opposite, so Thanks for that.

Also, I will now return this thread to the usual topic now that my mistake has been corrected (One I actually made twice)

<--------- If I helped you to your satisfaction, Rep me! (Its the green check)

Polaroid...... If i can I always use NCIX. Just for their short shipping times alone.. Newegg took over 2weeks to get me a psu, ncix takes less than a week for a whole system in boxes.

NCIX needs to revamp their site, I hate their search/catagory layout and their pictures... I use egg for that

Foldie = i7 950@ 4.0Ghz Gigabyte x58a-ud3r EVGA 970 SC Corsair H100 Corsair hx520 3x2gb OCZ Gold Corsair 650D
Woohoo = L5639 @3.1Ghz EVGA SR-2 gtx 260-216 Hyper 212+ Corsair 1050hx 6x2gb Corsair XMS3 Blackhawk Ulra
Alienware 18 - SLI 770M 4700mq 16Gig
