Video card is a Video card boys and girls. One could look better and one could run a lil' faster, but in the end, Its still a video card capable of what all the other video cards can do. I for one dont care, I get whatever is on sale, or easiest to aquire. I have both a GeForce FX 5600 256MB Ultra in one of my machines and a 9800 PRO 256MB in the other. Performance wise they seem the same to me, I really dont care. But since Im in Canada, ATI is much much easier to aquire. It usually takes a couple months to get anything Nvidia, some parts of the country are still waiting for the 5800/5900's. I had to order my 5600 from the good ol' US of A.
