The probelm with ATI is the drivers, they do not do the card justice. I still wouldn't mind a X1900XT, due to being able to do HDR, 2x AA and 2x AF in one cycle compared to 3 that other cards have to do.
I still remember Beedubs post where he got about 3fps in DOOM3 on medium settings with it.
I pay $400 for that card. Battlefield 2 came out, guess what? Missing textures. Reinstalled drivers. Formatted. Played BF2 for two days. Third day, missing textures.
ATI releases a driver to fix it. Install them. Works for a few days. Guess what? Missing textures.
It's not just missing textures. Lets factor in the fact I was getting crappy FPS, on all maps, in almost every game with a high-end $400 video card. So yea, you'll never see an ATI video card in my pc again. The only ATI card I was happy with is my Radeon 9200, 9800, and my more current that my laptop has is a 9700... which haha outperformed my X800.
Personally, I never want to deal with ATI again. Down with ATI.
