U just have to remember that there are also benchmarks in the internet where 7800GTX beats the x1800 XT in games like splinter cell: pandora tomorrow etc. Also I have seen benchmarks where the 7800GTX pwns in HL2. (can't remember the links, someone posted them here awhile ago) But all of them are not too reliable.

But they seem to be quite equal cards. Ppl say that the x1800 XT oc's very well, but I haven't seen any results so it's hard to say. And it seems quite clear that the x1800 XT is better in 3dMarks, yet still the top 10 in futuremarks page is done with nvidia, not a single computer with an ati card(s) in there.

The reviews are so mixed, it's unbelievable. I'm still sticking with Nvidia. THe two companies comes out with great video cards and both are more than capable of blowing away games. Heck, my 6600GT does an excellent job already in the new games I tried (NFSU2, F.E.A.R., AOE3, Medal of Honor, Unreal Tournament 2004).

Your welcome. It's pretty hard facts there once you can actually see it on paper. There are more benchmarks available but I grabbed the important ones. Otherwise, this whole thread would be one long picture after another picture after another picture, etc.

I'm just glad my 6600GT was recognized in there somewhere, lol.

Check it out!!!!!



All I can say is, dammmnnnnn....
I suppose Nvidia is too overrated so ATi deserves the spotlight until Nvidia comes out with something much bigger. ATi is like AMD where Intel is like Nvidia. ATi have been underdogs this whole time right? All the hypes been focus on Nvidia mainly for quite some time now.
