Default Re: 5870/5970 vs. GF100 (Fermi)

You NVidia fanboys really trip me out.....funny stuff. I'm not a fanboy of ANY brand....just buy the best at the time. I have a GTX260 216core vid card and have been very happy with it for 8 months now. But let's face it.....ATI's 5800 series kicks ass...period....end of story. I would buy one in a heartbeat if my budget allowed. They are the BEST right now....period.....end of story. Hopefully NVidia's new GF100 series will be competitively priced and perform better than ATI's best.......we'll see. Right now I'm not so sure that's going to happen. NVidia's ego, along with it's fanboys, has been hurt. You guys hate playing 2nd fiddle to ATI. HA! Isn't competition great!! It keeps the market in check.

Let's all be patient and see some real world benches before we make such silly accusations about performance and price. Try to set your NVidia fanboy egos aside and let the facts speak for themselves.
