how does this graphics card;
nVidia GeForce 6800
compare to graphics card like an ati radeon 9800? Im thinking of getting one of these nvidia's to play half life 2 and cs:source and other games to come in the future.
the 6800 series is ALOT better then the 9800 series, but its also alot more expensive, but if you want a graphics card for HL2 & CS:S in particular then you are going to want a card made by ATI, because the source engine was made to run better with ATI cards.
a ATI 800xt (or any 800 card) is a good choice for HL2 if you have the money, and if not, you should go for a 9800 pro (256 bit)
