I think the visual differences in Half-life2 will be so extreme in that case that even a 13 year old nVidiot fanboy from hell will be able to notice the difference and will be pissed.
The thing about fanboys is that they tend to see(or not see) what they want to see.
I agree that most people will probably see the IQ differences. The question is, will they care? Or will they be glad that they can play using the NV3x or DX9 path(even if it looks like the DX8.1 path with new drivers).
