I'm still debating... I had a GF2 GTS that wasn't too great. It had decent graph capabilities for it's time, but would cause my computers to freeze up every so often. I now use an ATI Radeon 8500 which is great. I once thought I'd stick with ATI, which they seem to be on top with single card setups, but that SLI setup from nVidea is very intriging!

Yes, nVidia for me aswell, but only because I have only had experience with them.

Really it depends what you want to play. ATi are much better for Half Life 2, whereas Nvidia are faster for Doom 3. When the engines for these games are used for others, you'll find that some give better performance on an ATi or Nvidia card. Personally, I would go for ATi. They are cheaper, faster, support Pci express to a better degree (more choice) and the top of the range x850 is immense.

Ummm, 99tollap, WTF do you mean more choices on PCIe????? NVidia has just as many models.. 5550, 5750, 6200, 6600, 6600GT, 6800, 6800GT, 6800Ultra, and Gigabyte 3D1... ATi is good, but I LOVE nVIDIA!! Go 6800Ultra or better yet, GigaByte 3D1!!!!!!!!!!!! 3D1 is a dual GPU on one card, dual 6600GT processors to be exact.

Well ATI's X850 Platinum Edition is the fastest out in the market, but nVIDIA is gonna pwn ATI with their new 6900 series.

No, ATi x850 PE is not the fastest.... Gigabytes 3D1 is.. Hands down.... 15,875 in 3DMark03... Nothing beats that.. Except dual 6800GTs of Ultras...

Ok, in the sense of single GPU cards. I meant just one single card. If you compared a X850 PE with a 6800 Ultra, the X850 would win (with the exception of SLI).
