What an original topic, long story short:
ATi: Performance > Eyecandy
nvidia: Performance < Eyecandy

Price, all depends on what model you get, and neither is better. Right now nvidia holds the performance crown with the 8800GTX, but that starts from $1000 (AU, am from Australia ). Tell me your budget and what you usually use your computer for and i'll recommend you a card.

You can't say ATi or nvidia is better (No such thing as geforce, it's nvidia) and $100 won't get you a decent card for gaming, espcially with those up coming DX10 games. If you really have to use only $100, go for a ATI Radeon X1300 Pro. But, if you want to play latest games at high settings, you need a budget of around .. $400 atleast. The ATI Radeon X1300 Pro will be a slug for games nowadays.

It will still take a pounding through all of today's games, and some games will still have unplayble FPS with low settings, if you want to today's games at acceptable frame rates, take a look at the Nvidia GeForce 7900 GS ($199-225), Although the card will only last for around 6months-1year until you will needto upgrade again. Good luck

First, what's your budget? Interface? Brand preference? Longevity? Those are somethings to consider. If you just need something to mid-range to last you until next year before you transistion into DirectX 10 video cards, the 7600 GT and the X1650 Pro will last you for a bit. You'll still get decent frames on decent settings, so don't expect anything full blown.

2.nVidia 7300 GT 256MB
