Do you not know of the beast that was the X1950? 9800 Pro? You act as if Nvidia has always been ahead.

Silly young-ens. The only GPU they know is the 8800GTX. Very high expectations!

My next graphics card purchases will definitely be ATI cards, mostly because I like like intel motherboard chipsets much more than nvidia and with the ATI cards being so much cheaper than Nvidia will throw a couple of them into a crossfire board.

The only downside to ATI is their drivers are terrible

I, too, am determining what card to go with...

Im currently with the Green team (See sig), but I'd have no problem going all-ATI, so long as it will do me good

I play at 1024x1280 mostly...Because I am t3h poor college studentzors

ATIs drivers are excellent from what I have heard. I know that they are better than Nvidias.
