Yeah, most people here are total Nvidia fans, who don't look at the facts and just post in favor of the Nvidia no matter what. The only ATI card this generation that really, really sucked is the X800 Pro. The others, while lacking Shader Model 3, are actually fantastic cards that match the Nvidia ones in framerate and beat them in image quality.
Honestly, I don't see SM3 as being as important as I once did, because with the new Splinter Cell Chaos Theory patch, SM2 does the exact same thing that only SM3 did previously.
