ATI was the way to go back when it was the FX series vs. the Radeon 9xxx series. However, now its the other way around. I will admit the X850XT is slightly faster than the 6800 Ultra, but its definately not worth the price when you can get a 6800 GT for under $400 and overclock it to an ultra, plus you get Pixel Shader 3.0. If you go ATI, get the X800 XL, which is the only card this generation which is even half-way worth the purchase.

Im willing to admit that Ati costs more, but There is no way your going to convince me that Nvidia is better. Aside from the price ive never found any aspect of nvidia to be better.

And even the price being higher solidifies proof of its expert design.

Lets just say they both kick butt. It's that simple. Some like one more than the other, but you can't really go wrong with either. IMO anyway.

i had nvidia cards since tnt2 was a new card. I must say im much happier with my ati 9600xt then i would with any nvidia card.

Ive never herd any valid arguments against Ati either.

So lets see some proof B dubya
ATI had the advantage in the FX vs 9XXX series. Right now it's Nvidia's turn.

And ATI with it's lack of a shader model 3 and just releasing OC'ed cards, what kind of design is that ff: as well as ATI's top end cards being outpeformed by a 6600GT in openGL

Even after you quit smoking, you can still get cancer, but good luck!

Go look up bench marks and then tell me that nvidia is leading.

X850 xt pe owns all nvidia generations. And the r520 will continue to do so.
