The bad thing about ATI is it’s drivers. If any of you have looked at any of the new games that come out, it takes them a while to come out with ATI patches. The Geforce series is the fastest video cards out there right now. Furthermore, as expensive as they may seem, in 3-6 months, they become very, very cheap (almost half). I’ve also heard that NVidia is moving away from the GeForce series, and working on a another video card (I forget the code name, not GeForce). Coming out in approximately 2003. 1Ghz GPU, 256 or 512 ddr ram,and many other benefits. I’m not sure if ATI will be able to compete against NVidia’s speedy graphics cards. Most people look for speed first, image quality second (although NVidia is not that far behind in image quality).
