Hl2 is set for ati cards, and the article above about the 5900 handling is using old drivers for those results. Dont get me wrong the ati cards are better, but not by much. I have played and have both cards and there isnt that much of a diffrence. The low cost fx cards are crap, but the higher costing ones are well made and are close competiters for the higher end ati cards.

Hmm, them 5900's are awfully cheap

But I'd go with a 9800 Pro, they are only $300 or so bucks
