Wait until DX10 games start coming out, then we'll actually know who has the better DX10 support.

Hmmm,

I firmly believe my $270 card is far from a "cheap solution". Of course this 320 wont perform on par with yours, mine costs less than half as much, but in no way does it offer only half the performance. 11k 3dmark is nothing to scoff at.


As to the whole dx10 vs 9 thing. I may have bought a dx10 card, but I will probably never play a dx10 game. But, my dx10 card performs very very well in dx9. Its just nice to know that if I ever did get vista, I will be all set.

If you have an ATI Crossfire chipset then definitely get the Radeon. Then you can CF someday if you so choose.

If you are using a Crossfire motherboard, and are seriously considering using a dual card setup in the future, I'd go with ATI if they have a viable card out there. I consider the HD2900XT a very viable card. Some do not. But IMO the 2900XT is a good card, runs DX10 (which is a plus) and doesn't have a completely outrageous price tag. If you don't ever plan on using dual cards, the 8800GTS 320MB might be the better option, as you'll probably get more performance for the dollar.
