Yea I like nvidia better, but I think the X1900XT is better. I checked the benches, and the 7950GT does beat the X1900XT in some:

hmmmmmm ok

yeah I like Nvidia..pretty good graphics and waht not.

just wasn't sure..also do you know my mothboard ASUS P5W DH - which is like ATI Crossfire Ready would be better with a ATI Video card...or does it matter if it's either ATI or Nvidia??...NOT using dual just to make that clear haha

thanks

but you know if your spending that kind of money i'd wait for the geforce 8800 to come down a little bit. Thats what i am waiting for. Its going to bite if you get that 7950GT cause thats what $300? and the 8800 is about $400-$500.

I hate ati. i have 1 ati card and it sucks. My dad has 3 ati's and they all suck too. Thats why i switched to nvidia and i noticed a huge difference. Sure the fan on the nvidia might sound louder but the card is better. Its kinda like comparing 2 cars and one revs up really loud whereas the other one you can't hear it as good.

Uhh... the card itself is more important than the brand it is...
