Not neglecting the fact that many custom models of the 8800GTX have come out so far since the card has been on the market for a much longer time. When some custom model of the 2900XT 1GB with some better cooling and more OC potential is released then you can judge which one holds more value. And this has been said over and over again, but I will repeat it once again. The drivers of ATI for the 2900XT aren't nearly as good as the nVidia since they are like 1 month old and the nVidia's are 7-8 months old ( make your own damn assumptions )
How can you compare objectivity and ownership of a specific videocard?
Time cannot tell which videocard it better. This is a technology market. With time, no one will care about these flagships, because the new flagships from Nvidia / ATI Will be out. Nvidia took the performance spot last November and continues to hold it today. The X2900XT won't change that. Hopefully ATI's next offerings will be more competitive. However, Nvidia will be launching their next series in November. How long will it be before ATI does the same?
