if you can manage to hold on for maybe 1 more month? (there's no hurry really i suppose) then the additional 50£ is well worth it. regardless of whichever card you'll get i think you will be happy with the performance, i'm not saying nvidia is better than ati cause that's fanboyism, i'm just saying the GF8 cards newer tech and that so called Gigathread thing really comes into play, i just reinstalled GRAW 1 for a test and i couldn't believe how smooth it was compared to the X1900XTX which is a real fast card in its own right. GigaThread™ Technology Massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs. actually it is the first time some new architecture shows benefits straight away unlike previous card generation. good luck with your purchase Solinari.
