i find (as i have stated) most games are coded mainly to be used in an nvidia environment and thats experience talking not just because i have it. nvidia make better cards and everybody knows it. im not a fanboy... in fact i use intel but i love amd... why use intel they have better hardware and is more stable.

depends on if u can get the G15 for $70 AUD (not $180)

Just for like an instant. You know when you get an electrostatic shock from touching metal sometimes? that's your body releasing the electrical charge it had built up through out the day. So all you want to do is get rid of that charge. Toughing the case should be fine, provided it is metal (the HAF is).

I've actually forgotten to discharge myself and touched my GFX card with a metal screwdriver . Yeah, there was a spark, but everything seems to be working. Just try to be more careful than me.

Ok thanks for the pic... Big relief... Can I paint the inside of this case black to match the outside ? And what kind of paint do I use? Gloss, pearlescent? I'm not sure, and should I use a spray or brush?

Again, completely untrue. The bolded statement is a contradiction in itself.
Sure some games run better with nvidia cards, for example crysis but there are plenty of games that run better on ATI cards, GRID for example.
