Default Ranking ATI cards

Since ATI cards are made for HL2 and nvidia cards are made for D3, what would the list of ATi cards from best to worst be? I am thinking of upgrading for HL2, which is a better game than D3.

Can't really help here, but to Beedubaya, three things. One, that list actually clears some confusion I had. Thanks. Two, do you have a similar one for NVIDIA? Sorry :laughing:...I haven't been following video cards at all lately, so I know nothing anymore. And three, reverse psychology works FAR too well...

I wouldn't have said it if I wasn't serious. If you'd like to talk to me farther about this then I'd recommend that you PM me. Just to make sure we don't break any rules. :beard:
