Ok, well the point of him linking that was because many times you've said 'NAH the X850XT beats out even an Ultra in doom3!' which clearly isn't the case,
I NEVER SAID THAT!!!
I know that doom 3 is NVIDIA's game. All I said was that the x850 xt beats the 6600 gt in doom 3, which it does!
Also what is with all the people saying nvidia's $200 card beating Ati's $800 card. Let's straighten some of that out right now. First off that is only one game. Secondly, the x850 xt which is what we were talking about is only $445, NOT $800!!! The only card that is $800 is the x850 xt platinum edition PCI-E version made by sapphire. But there are cheaper pe version that run on AGP.
Also no I was not lieing about the x850 xt beating two 6800 ultra's. On half life 2 it does happen, that's what I said.
And btw doom 3 and half life 2 are only 2 games out of many in the world, you have to remember that. On all other Direct3D and OpenGL games there is not as big of a difference between ATI and NVIDIA.
So saying that the 6600 gt is better than the top-end ati cards just because it wins at doom 3 is kinda stupid. You can't base everything off of one game. Otherwise I would invite you to look at half life 2 and then see who looks better, ATI or NVIDIA.
