Thank GOD somone finally came out and said it!!

Back to cards:

Both have their ups and downs, but ATI seems to have the more 'STABLE' of the two.

If you are gonna keep this card for like 3 years, go with nvidia, their cards already have the shader 3 support

If you have it for like a year, go with the ati, their cards are faster in games at the moment.

How long do you imagine it will be before the X800 is outdated?
