if you don't agree look at Hard Ocp's review.

Lol! My point exactly! The difference between nVidia Cards and ATi Cards eitherway is minor - it is the theory of the person as to which is better. nVidia or ATi is down to taste - not which is better.

They are; but the point is that Intel HTs have and never had not blown the top off AMD! Intel have yet to be surpassed by power - and AMD have given up on Speed entirely! The 64-bit does give AMD a head but power will not be changed until there are more 64-bit Programs.

EDIT: by which point Intel will have a 4 if not more Ghz 64-bit Processor out to meet AMD.

Nvidia rule and also the 6800 has almost doubled the Ati profromace . X800 is ment to be a slight proformace diffrent not as much as Nvidias.
So ATI are CRAP my friend .
NVIDIA RULE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lol - I wouldn't say it that harshly but its basically true. I think maybe the next piece of Hardware I get is going to have to be a nVidia Card better than my one now - which my friend seems to think is slower than his ATi 9600 128Mb (if it is even a 128Mb!) Its a year and a half old and I'm hoping my Spring Cleaning will prove him wrong! You have seen how many files and viruses my Computer has and FarCry worked with only slight flickering. When I clean it up I hope to thrash his pants with it!
