That one is a no-brainer.

The NVIDIA 5900 SE isnt even up to par with the 5900 Ultra, so that one is definetely easy...............

THE ATI RADEON 9800 PRO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would go for the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro any day.

I myself am looking to buy a new video card, as i only have a GeforceII MX 200 64MB.

So from the research I have done the ATI comes on top.

Hmmmm.......

The Radeon 9800 Pro is probably better than the FX 5900 and 5950 Ultra, especially when looking at most of the benchmarks on http://www.tomshardware.com

I need a new video card, and personally, i think the 9800 pro is the best out right now, so im going to get it soon as a replacement for my 9600 XT..........

I have been looking at some other benchmark stuff and some of them shoowed the 9800XT was better than 5950Ultra and some the opposite i think that there is not much differense though i would always go with the Nvidia.
