Default I need some FX5900Ultra vs Radeon9800pro Benchmarks please.

A friend wants to buy a Geforcefx 5900 but i keep saying him to buy ATI instead of Nvidia for this current generation of cards, but he still wants to spend his hard-gained money on a 500$ piece of hardware cause he says Nvidia is more trustful (he has a ti 4200 and is very happy with it but wants to play hl2 and many other stuff). Anyway, if you could link me some benchmarks of popular games (no quake3 plz) showing the scores of both cards under heavy usage of AA and AF so i can show him the light, i`d be very thankful.

Any past reviews of FX 5900 would be biased and untrue.

Due to the fact that 5900 is a Dx 9 card, yet it struggles in Dx9.

So like I said, any past reviews would be invalid.

Just go for the comparisons done by Toms or Anand.

please tell your friend to come here at least and read some threads and be more informed on how trustful nvidia really is before spending his hard-earned money. anyway, his hard earned money will serve him right, it will either teach him a good lesson or get him a really good card(9800pro).

Search this forum and search Google and you should be able to find all the information you could possibly need.

Man, do we have to point out all the bloody evidence for everybody?

There's a "search" feature on this forum, if you want to help you friend out I suggest you use it. (Sorry if that sounds grumpy, I'm still pre-coffee. )

Just read Behemoths posts for the last 6 monthes. He was a Hardcore Nvidiot (not that that's a bad thing) but his 5900 didn't live up to the hype. Now he's a happy 9800 owner~!

How's this for evidence that NVidia has admitted defeat at Computex:

"nVidia mentioned at the end that they hoped that people were not too upset that the GeForce range did not receive much attention. They hoped that this would show people that they are just not a GPU maker but a more diverse company with a bunch of new and exciting initiatives for the future."

The strikes me as more PR work to deflect heat away from the more pressing issues at hand.
