7800GTX vs X1900XTX vs Matrox
 
It's the showdown of the vid cards I'm considering on buying...

The NVIDIA 7800GTX (Not sure which of those to get)

The ATI X1900XTX (Not sure which of those to get)

The MATROX 256MB

I heard that the Matrox is excellent for 2D development applications, like the Adobe Creative Suite and Macromedia Studio. I am assuming its gaming ability is way under par.

Can the 7800 and 1900 handle those development applications as well, or better than the Matrox?

In conclusion, which is better and less expensive, the 7800GTX or its ATI counterpart, the ATI x1900xtx? Compare them singly, and then with SLI/Crossfire enabled/configured.

EDIT: Is this article trustworthy?

Yeah... heh, this probably seems strange. I build PC's for distant and close relatives alike. You can imagine how much I make for building them :p

But seriously, I'm a newb at this, but that's what they don't understand.

The PC I'm talking about right now is for my own personal use. And the purpose of this thread is getting to know the stats of these cards before I purchase them. I'll have to get a load of cash.

No. That's the point. I don't charge. They're family. All they do is pay for the parts, I don't charge for building. Plus I'm new to building, really... it's funny, as soon as I started up the notion of building, excitement exploded in my face.

*tsk* For shame! ;)

So instead of talking about my reluctant position as PC builder of my family (and consequentially, their families), let's get back on topic.

Same here. I tell them what to buy and they pay for it. I build it for them. Then they come to me after a year complaining about problems creeping up :(

Mainly their system gets slower and slower.
