Got my first ATI card this weekend. I been PC Gaming since 95 and using aftermarket cards for years now. Used the VOODOO and VOODOO2 from 3dfx. Then the GeForce by Nvidia for the last few years. Was close to getting a 4890 over Christmas but I had a deal on the 260 GTX. The 5850 is awesome, great performance with low heat/power consumption, I absolutely love it. It compliments my new i7 920 perfectly, running 1920x1200 with no issues at all on good/high quality settings.

Been red since I popped my first video card into a system, back in 2005.

5870 is going to be my next purchase

My last NVidia card was a GF4200 ti, 128mb I think. I had a TNT2 and a GF2 32mb GTS as well. I then got a 9800pro after the GF4 (I think) and since then have bought ATI cards because they've been damn good to me.

Not a fanboi, just a fan of cheap video cards for everyone. So I am actually quite disappointed at NVidia this time around, but not because they appear to have dropped the ball a bit in terms of release date and whoopass content of their new cards, but because we're all better off if both sides are manufacturing good cards. Bit like in government, where good opposition eventually benefits all.

The ideal scenario for me was that the 470 murdered the 5850, and subsquently drove it down massively in price. Because it's still a beast of a card. Either that or that the 470 be priced competitively, so I could consider switching back to NVidia. But I couldn't wait any longer and got a 5850 a coupla months back, which given the latest NVidia offerings, was the right thing to do as prices haven't exactly fallen of late.

NVidia will be back. And the sooner the better, because AMD has no obligation to reduce prices right now, Fermi cards are not superior enough for that.

So I'm in the red tide too, red has been good to me. Not saying I won't join any future green tides though if it's worth doing, right now it isn't to me.

Amen there!!!.. The issues I have with Nvidia is the much larger market share they have over ATI.. It allows them to dictate higher prices for their cards... If there was more parity market share wise... both red and green teams would see not only price wars, but wars in innovation and quality as well... which is a win for the gamer PERIOD...

Nvidia may have dropped the ball a bit on this one...but some die shrinks and rethinking on their hardware will justify their higher prices...or they might drop prices to keep competitive... Win-win !!
