When it's an issue solely of graphical quality, a fine point is discresion must be made in one's view of something. Don't lash out against people as favoring "their" brand when they don't agree with you either.

I believe I made my comments on Antec PSUs... but incase I didn't, that's a fine choice. My dad just built a new machine (or I guess I should say I built it, he paid for it ) with an Antec Truepower 2.0 550 watt in it. The cables were nice and easy to work with and the unit performs well under heavy load, a good choice, especially for Antec's relatively low price. But that's what you get when you don't need all the fancy modular cables, glow in the dark wires, and light up windows I guess, a good unit that performs well.

I'd also like to see your response Jori. Who's spewing crap now?

Well then you need glasses, the 6800's image quality is clearly better in the water, and there are various other little locations that theres a difference..

Edit: Ok fine, it doesnt pass, but why does it still look better? And also do you have any other links with articles that say that?

Edit2: oh yeah, sccr. Lose that attitude. Seriously.

Here's your proof, I was even able to read it despite being "dumb,deaf,blind,living under a rock,arrogant,ATI aligned, and a misrepresenter of facts."
http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=27084 Btw,that's 150 hours of testing.
Apology? Yet again, reading what you chose to read. I don't recall denying that nVidia was failing WHQL tests either, just that I couldn't give a flying f*** or not, cause it looks fine to me either way. You'll also notice in that screenshot of ATi's slideshow at the bottom it says their tests were down with 66.81 drivers, so I was right once again. Either way, whatever helps you sleep at night man, the fact still remains the 6800 can do "some" SM3.0 and the X850 can do none, the whole point of this argument. Numbers are one thing, but pictures speak a thousand words, go take a look at those screenshots.
People can learn all they want here, ask plenty of people, I've provided knowledge of a vast majority of long-time members here. But when people challenge me and try to discredit me, I fight back, and I win, as I have here. That statement? Was in regards to HrnyGoat calling me a fanboy, not trying to discuss a topic, so if you're going to try and make me look bad, at least try a little harder.

I have no idea and I've never compared the 2. We were simply discussing it when Yiffy just flamed me out of nowhere for having a discussion. Even if I would've been wrong, that's not the way to act in ANY forum. Coming from a moderator makes it even more appalling. I never attacked him or anyone or claimed to know it all. I was simply discussing and trying to help. No idea why someone would act like that.

Again, lose the attitude. Yiffy didnt flame you. If you took any of his comments as flaming, then toughen up. As Yiffy said, he may be a moderator but he is entitled to an opinion and freedom of speech. His mod status does not change that.

I have better than 20/20 fyi. I know SM 3.0 is better but not by a huge amount. But that blueish tint is more game related. The water in HL2 and CS:S doenst have that blue color so I just ignored that and looked at the rest of the differences and there wasnt much.
Very nice!

There wasnt much, but its still there. So Nvidia does have better image quality over the X8## series..
