Oh for the love of God will you think before you post? ATI has the best GPU out on the market, the X1900XTX, and ATI offers more cards at very reasonable prices. Just ONCE could you do us all a favor, do a little research, and then maybe
post with a bit of knowledge?
The X1800GTO seems to compete against the 7600GT and 7600GS, along with the 6800GS and 7300GS. Or at least those are the cards it can mostly beat when it comes to performance. For only $230 you can't go wrong. It's cheaper then the 7800GT, 7900GT, and only $5 then the 6800GS model. Seems liek the better buy to me. Another thing it offers is the large amount of pixel shader processors, like it's bigger brother counterparts, the X1800XT and X1900 series. The X1900 series boasting 48 and I believe the X1800 series has soemwhere around 36 or 24, although I'm not 100% sure on the actual numbers.
[EDIT] The X1800 series uses 16 pixel shader processors. Unliek the X1900 series which uses 48 pixel shader processors. The 7600GT only uses 12 pixel shader processors. But the X1800 series uses 8 vertex shaders and I believe the 7600GT only has 4, although I could be mistaken, but NVIDIA doesn't claim what it has on their website.
