I have a Ford Focus
Jaguar releases a new "low-end" car which is very comparable to the Focus, and costs maybe 50% more than my Focus, but is more fun to drive as well. At this point, I have a Focus that works quite well, and is still very fun to drive. Why should I buy a new car? I won't. Maybe I'll install a turbo in my Focus instead.
However, if I have a Geo-Metro or no car at all, I would definitely look into getting the new Jaguar.
Just because you have an Nvidia setup and other people do as well doesn't mean that it is worthless for ATi to invest in new technology and come out with new ideas. Nobody's asking you to upgrade or change systems or bend over backwards to please ATi - ATi is simply putting new technology and new options out there for consumers. If I had the cash to drop, I'd likely get this setup because I currently have an AGP 8x ATi Radeon 9700Pro 128mb. This setup would be worlds better than what I have (The Geo-Metro of the computing world).
