Question I wanna get a new vid. card=> which one is better?

Please don't make this thread an ""nVidia vs. ATI"", but there are 2 cards I was looking at and I need to know which one is better. Don't say one is better, judgeing by the company.

Here are th e 2

1. MSI nVidia FX5900XT
2. ATI All in Wonder 9800PRO

I personally would prefer nVidia or ATI, I am not racist like some of u dudes are. I am getting some of these new NOVEMBER games and my 9600SE isn't keeping up.(dang)


Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

The Radeon 9800 Pro (AIW) would be the better choice.

If we keep this thread talking about 9800 vs. FX, ATI always wins. I'll agree and say 9800 Pro.

It is a known fact that the ATI 9*** series ownz Nvidias 5*** series. But if we go into the latest generation then thats a completely different story.
