I'll challenge anyone if they read my wrong and comes out with all guns blazing for no reason. Guru means nothing, except how long you have been on a certain forum for.

Well, I would go for the Radeon. The fact that in general the outperform each other across all benchmarks almost evenly, and I would much rather right now prefer to buy a gamming card that could produce playable frame rates in DirectX9 games with DirectX9 features enabled.

Everyone hsa there preference.

Peace Gian

I'd prefer the BFG myself because it is a better overclocker and does in general better in most benchmarks (winning out in 60-70% of the benchmarks that i provided). Most others are just about even.

That's my preference.

I'd take the FX, purly because ATi cant code drivers, cards no use without drivers.
