Well, that would seem to be a surprise, but when you look at my poll, you see that a lot of people prefer Nvidia, but just feel ATI has a better highend product at the moment.

Just because you're a fan, doesn't mean you can't look at things objectively. :) Of course, that's not to say that thinking Nvidia has the better product is unobjective!

What if someone wants to buy a GeForce4....that's not in the options :D

for a low-end card, FX. for a mid-end card, probably FX (5600 Ultra Rev 2).

high end card? 9800 Pro or non-Pro simply because the AA si better.

i claim same thing(FX5600U Rev2) as TB yet i find the 5900U a better pick (i just don't find the FX's AA a weak point in the card, in game it looks even better to my eye).
the real thing i wanan see from Nv is an Oc kit (something like the
FlowFX the main thing that should be changed is a better fan something like the delta 7000RPM 80mm :) something sick with 76db :D

Well after looking at both the reviews posted on the front page today, one for the radeon the other the 5900Ultra, I would say that the 5900Ultra does seem to be a very solid product. I would go for the 5900Ultra first now if given the choice, but both the 5900Ultra and the 9800Pro are great cards, and I would be happy with either ;)

A while ago I had this choice in front of me and I went with 9800pro. I could not be happier with it. :D

Was considering a 5900 Ultra, but bought a 9800 Pro instead and am very happy with it... nuff said. :D

07-16-03, 03:07 PM
To tell you the truth i an't sure which i would buy anymore.

07-16-03, 03:39 PM
But choosing right now it would be a GFFX 5900 non ultra by Prolink, Gainward, Albatron, or MSI :thumbsup:

I'd only take an ATI card if it was given to me.

07-16-03, 05:15 PM
I'd only take the FX card if someone Paid me to take it.

Why do you always direct quote me B&R? You've done that like 10 times since you started coming here! :D

07-16-03, 08:53 PM
LOL, I was wondering the same thing :p

07-16-03, 09:03 PM
I'm planning to buy a PNY FX 5200 128 MB. But I have an ATI Radeon 7500 64MB. So to me, it all depends on which is the better card Performance wise. One of the main reasons I'm planning to buy a FX 5200 is because it has native support for DirectX 9.0. Hopefully the benchmarks will get better for the 5200 in the future.
