My SE is fine. People always ripping it, you get what you pay for. Its a sweet card.

I like nvidia also. I've never owned an ati card. Had an nvidia 6800gt agp that was a good card also. And my 8800gts is still not that bad considering its age and use.


So I am prolly getting the 460gtx 1gb. Seems to be the safe bet for the price range.
