And yet a lot of people here have switched to ATI or are possibly planning on it. Just nvidia users are let down... if not by the performance, the price. I think the premium nvidia is demanding for the 480 is too much. And while the 470 falls comfortably in its place, I was willing to spend a little bit more to get a 5870 (actually I had a coupon code so I was basically able to get one for around the same price).

If the 480 were more competitively priced I think there'd be less defectors. Anyway my point is when it boils down to it, it has nothing to do with fanboyism but rather people just trying to get the best bang for the buck.
Bingo. I was planning on waiting for a GTX 470, but they are hard to get a hold of and for $50 more I could get a 5870 so I went that route. I just want the best bang for the buck, I don't care if my card is red or green. I have had nvidia cards for the past 6 years now (6800GT, 7800GTX, 8800GT, 9800GT) and I am sure I will go back to their cards when the priceerformance is right
