maybe u, me or anyone shouldnt be putting down ATI fanboys, because there are realy only 2 GFX card makers that i know of. and if one of them stops producing, GFX cards will be monopolized by the other company. Then the cards will no longer be priced competitivly and the consumer will suffer. so i think fanboys help hold these prices down, and provide funding for competitive new released technologys.

so my advice...
buy whatever the **** you wont, fanboy.

I own 2 systems:

(1) nVIDIA (2) 6800u's SLI / FX-55
(2) ATI (1) X800XT PE / P4 3.4GHz

Overall the 1st one is much better - Benchmarks & performance overall.

But, the second on can do anything the first on can, just not as good on a benchmark level. Games are just as impressive as the first one. You don't see much of a difference. But when you run a bench, there's a huge difference....

I think game developers should write Pixel Shader 2.0 paths for ATI users. Nvidia must be paying them a lot of money to compensate for the loss of sales from ATI users. Then again, ATI fanboys are starting to say things like "its not about the graphics." LOL...buy a $900 card and then say that...pshhht
I was uneducated when i bought my X850 XT... I was planning on a 6800 GT, but i got my comp from cyberpower, and the X850 XT was only $50 more.

Ok this is where our opinions clash

-Nvidia is not paying the game manafactuers to code in PS2, and ATI isnt paying them to code in PS2. PS3 will be required in HL2 and we all know about the HL2 \ ATI moula moula thing.

-PS 2 is a royal pain in the @ss to code in, it will cost game manafactuers alot more.
