They are very close in performance with the HD 4670 coming out slightly ahead in most tests.

Those results arnt realy accreute as the ati card has 512mb onboard memory and the nvidia card has 384. But the nvidia card you have has 512mb memory and not only that it's also 256-bit wide interface rather than 128-bit, i recommend the nvidia card as because of those features. Plus not only that but it was beating the ati card with only 384mb of memory over 512mb.

I'm also off to buy the HD 3870 over the GTX 295 because it has a higher clock speed.

I'd get the 9600 just for that sweet cooler. I think I'm actually going to buy it right now.

if you would select the nvidia card then you would be deciding to get less performance in games, especially with DirectX 10/10.1, with AA turned on and at resolutions higher than 1280x1024, but hey, it "looks" and "sounds" cooler...

your choice though...

The ATI would probably be better, since it's the same price. Here's something that you may find useful http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rd,2064-7.html
