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.

Well, my 5900 U cost me 90 from ebay (admittedly a good deal) and it flashed to a 5950 U without any problems.

Airiox (I think) has some Doom 3 benchmarks to make you weep.

Don't try and tell me the x800 isn't a pile of shit either lol.

PS: Clean up your language a bit mate it's un-necessary

And why do you think ATi offers atleast a 2 year guarentee? Because their products are VERY likely to fall apart and it's so cheap to replace them lol.
