Default I know what I want now!!!

I am getting the Nvidia 6800 Ultra Extreme...

Thanks to flash_aaa link you will see why... Nvidia just simply wins

My nvidia 5600 has been perfect for me... I will remain a Nvidia customer

ATI Radeon X800 Xt or Nvidia 6800 Ultra, you will have an excellent video card whichever one you choose

I am going with the Nvidia 6800 ultra... after looking through a couple of websites, ATI drivers are not good, and most high graphic games run better with nvidia

well the games run better on the 6800 with the more advanced options turned off, but the X800 performs better with the more advanced options turned on

Although the 6800 will last longer.

What's this about ATI drivers not being good? Is that true? Also, what's this about it lasting longer?
