    Well ive had my nVIDIA for some tme and the graphics on it are the best quality money can buy. Hooooowever ATI is more stable and doesnt start to melt when you play your games on it. So what are your views?

    For a very long time Nvidia had a clear lead over ATI, both in terms of speed and driver stability. With the FX line, however, ATI took the lead from Nvidia beating any of their cards with the 9800XT and those in the same generation. Not only in speed, but the image quality of nvidia was loosing big time to ati, especially in their AA routines.

    Right now, the leader spot is back with Nvidia and their 6800 series. That is both in terms of speed, OpenGL support, and features like SM3. Stability is not an issue with either at this point of the game (IMO), and as for heat, I haven't looked at the normal temp of the latest ATI cards, but my Leadtek 6800 with a very good heatsink runs without any overheating issues event at full load and overclocked.

    Based on that my current vote goes to nvidia, but for all we know it can change the next generation. I simply go with what is better at the time.

    Because it's a lower budget card, I know the more expensive ATI cards are better

    ATi > nVidia EVERYDAY of the Week

    And you rem that said 6800 beats ATi

    Your so full of shit.

    Have you even read ANY reviews of the Radeon X800XT PE vs 6800Ultra??

    In EVERY game But Doom III the Radeon X800XT Pe does BETTER!

    The ATi also only needs 1 moleX connector, and only uses 75W whereas the 6800Ultra uses 110W, and 2 Slots.

    So apart from Shader 3.0 (which only 1-2 games supprot) the nVidia has NO edge over ATi!!!!
