Default Debating...

Ok, the debate rages on. I currently run a "make-shift" computer while I am assembling my system and configuring it how I like it.

I have come to the point where I have to decide which one to run. I have run Nvidia cards almost as long as I have been working with computers. I have found them to be stable and the drivers regularly updated. The games I use my system for are for the most part designed to run with Nvidia cards.

I have heard rave reviews about the ATI X1900Xs and I am curious if this card will do the job with minimal amount of fuss. It does me no good to get the ATI, and it runs all my applcations perfectly but has graphical corruptions or a pain to configure to my games.

So I am debating....

2 7800GTXs SLI'd

or

1 ATI X1900X 512

(pulls on hair)

If anyone has any spec information to compare or maybe 1st hand experience with either of these 2 cards in various games and applications, the feedback would help me a ton!

Thanks!
