Now get back to your Nvidia bumlovin' and leave real gamers to their doings.
Lol - I would edit that but it would not be called for.
However; firstly you can't compare the 9800XT - the highest of that range for ATi; to the 5900 - the third or maybe fourth in nVidias Range which if you're comparing then it should be the 5950 Ultra: which as far as I know is a far superior card whatever the price. Somebody after a Card they can fight for should be prepared to pay whatever to get the card he wants. nVidia - will also last a good deal longer and is a more powerful, not neccersaily faster which is not the definition of power, card.
For £160? I don't know what nVidia prices are - nor what ATi Cards are; but the difference is not really worth your profanity.
