Default Nvidea Vs. Ati

which video card is better i have always thought that ati was the better one till a friend told me the the ps2 and gcn were using 128 ati's,. and the xbox is using a 64 nvidea. and i personlly think that the xbox has better graphics. anyway i am thinking of getting a new card in my computer, because i am running a 128 ati raedon x300. or is this card good enough, i do play games like counter strike, well thats really the only one. anyway which card is better?

They both are OK. It's just the brand...you won't have much difference between them

Well...... another ati vs. nvidia. First off.... the x300 sucks! No offense, but it does. I know. I had it. Trust me. Counter Strike looks decent, but man... what settings do you play it at? 1024 x 768? I couldn't get anything above that that was smooth. Now my card... lol. Highest settings and NO lag at all. And I have a 17" lcd. Ati, in my opinion, has the most powerful card, or at least did, until the 7800 came out. Ati's x850xt pe destroys! But then, so does the 7800, and even more. The x850xt pe will pwn any 6800ultra, gt, etc. I have an x800 but I've oc'ed, lol, to better speeds. It's just your preference... a lot of people say nvidia is better but from what I've seen... nah. Ati works for me perfectly. I had an old 6200 on an older pc and it sucked... so yeah. My x800 has yet to fail me. If I were you, I'd get my card. Newegg.com is the place. Or you can get something like it. An x850xt pe if you have the money! lol...

The 7800 GTX? Haha, yeah right...ATI will claim their throne again with the R520 in CrossFire.

Did you know that the difference between 2 X850 XT PE's in CrossFire and 2 7800 GTX's in SLI is by a mere 10 FPS?

Those were the cards that I found.
These will play any game at any level of settings.

I highly doubt that those are going to run BF2 smoothly with the highest settings. But they are good for cs.

I'm personally a nvida man, I'm going to be getting MSI 7800gtx.. and hopefully soon after that I'll be using SLI with the thing. But it's really just personal preference. So it's up to you, but I would say invest a little money and get a higher end card.
