ATI will probably be better in that aspect. I will still always choose nvidia though.

It's ok, I never buy the best cards on the market anyway, a mid-ranged card with similar pricing as the 7600GT back when it was the best deal you could get will be more than enough for my future builds, I'm seriously considering to have my next GPU be manufactured by ATI, regardless of the Radeon HD 2900XTX's performance.

nVIDIA's drivers suck. The last great Forceware driver was 66.93. After that they never matched the stability it offered. ATI's Catalyst is way better in terms of stability, at least now they are.

Yeah, the latest benchmarks aren't good. ATI needs to improve their DirectX 10 drivers more. The X2900 XTX should hand the 8800 GTX's ass to it. Another thing is that AMD/ATI has delayed the X2900 for far too long.

Did you read the article? The 8800GTX beat the X2900XTX.
