Question nvidia video cards

ok, I need a video card,, acutally a couple of them,, all I have ever run is ATI. I love ATI cards, but I am curious about nvidia cards. There are a ton of companies that sell nvidia cards, what is the best all round nvidia card? A friend of mine has a MSI Ti4200, 128mg and he loves it. I am looking at a high end card and a middle of the road card.

Any suggestions?

Right now I think the Nvidia GeForce 5950 256 MB is one of highest they sell (for high end prices as well..) But 6800 coming out soon, so that will be a lot better competition for the ATI. I'm not really a pro on the subject tho, so dont listen to me.

P.S. Not very much diff between 128 MB and 256, other than big price difference and a bit of FPS in games somewhat. You mainly paying for bragging rights. A topic being discussed constantly is waiting for PCI Express to come out, as it is supposed to be way better than AGP. I personally prefer Nvidia cards over ATI, but it is purely personal preference. Dont want this thread to start as another vid card arguement..

What you've got now is pretty darn good right now. I wish I had it. I'm running a Radeon 9600XT myself. I really don't see a compelling reason to go nvidia right now unless ATI can't match or come close to the 6800 when it comes out.

ATI is much better, although if you really wanna go nvidia i suggest MSI they are far the best manufacturer, if you get a fx5900 it can be overclocked to the performance of an fx5950 anyway saving you some cash
