Just my humble $0.2 so don't anyone flame me
If, like me, you are looking for quiet computing, and only need performance for games, keep yourself to a strict budget - ATI is the hands down winner here.
If you need the new Cuda architecture, are not constrained by budget and don't mind water cooling, Fermi may be for you.
Yes it has excellent performance in games, but the cost, heat output and noise leave me no option other than ATI today. Like I said before though, give it some months and us air cooled budget gamers may see drastic refinements we can live with.
