Default Re: Video Cards

Always... ah, no, I dun think so. Until the 7800gtx came out… ati and nvidia were on par, with ati actually beating nvidia in some tests… ati’s x850xt pe was the top of the line of the vid. Card world, with the 6800ultra following closely behind or running along side it. Then the 7800gtx came out. That pwns now. And then the R520 will come out and pwn the 7800gtx and the fight goes…

some games run better on ATI and some better on Nvidia. like HL2 runs better on ATI cards but doom 3 runs better on Nvidia cards. it just matters which brand the game is tested on more.
