GTX 275>4890. Nvidia better driver support+physx. The 4890's are nice but has two major strikes against it, texture units and driver support.

ROTFCOPTER! This isnt the days of the X850XT vs the 6800Ultra, yes back then ATI was most definently better as I owned both a X850XT and a X1900XTX up until the arrival of the 8800GTX and these benches that you posted only prove how much better the 8800GTX aged compared to its direct competitor the 2900XT.

Noooooo really! I bet no one was even aware of that! Once again, this isnt 2005 jack.

ATI reigned in the R300 days, lost in the R600 days badly to Nvidia and now both are pretty much trading blows accross the board. Get your facts straight.
