    Pretty much sums up my exact feelings on the matter as well.

    I change GPU's more often then some people change their under-ware, in the last 2 years I've gone through.....

    3650 512MB, 8800 GTS 640MB, 8800 GTX, 8800 GT, 4830 512MB, GTX 260, 4870 512MB, GTX 260 Core 216, 4870 1GB, GTX 285, GTX 285 SLi, and now a 5870 1GB and as soon as they release 2 5870 2GB.

    I just go with whats new and it gives me a chance to form a non bias opinion :)

    ^ this exactly.

    And yeah, I think Nvidia's offers have been disappointing value for the money since their prime-time of glory, the GeForce 8-series.

    My 8800GT just died on me, and I'm going with the reds. I don't mean I'm having a menstruation, that'd be awkward, but I'm getting an HD5850 :flip2:

    Sorry, I just love that smiley for some reason >.<

    just convinced a buddy of mine to take his new laptop back that he bought from best buy...

    came with an intel core 2 duo, 4gb ddr3, and an intel graphics chip.
    loaded cod5 to it and it chugged like a b!tch...

    he went AMD/ATI combo, because unless you pay around $800 or more its hard to find a good intel/Nv chip... but all the budget AMD machines come with at least a HD3200, he opted for an turion x2 /w the HD4200 and 4gb ddr. was $76 more but hey, at least it can play games like nothing now

    total $575

    I got a 4890 over a 275 because it was a hell of a lot cheaper than the latter.

    Was simple last year, HD4870 was much cheaper than GTX260 and faster and the same time. Only a fool would chose diffrently :D

    best bang for the buck is where i stick my hard earned down and for me that's always been ATI as the last nVidia card i ever owned was an MX440 with 64MB of ddr

    since radeon 9550 i sticked with ati. main reason is price/performance ratio. if we choose cards with same performance ratio from nvidia and ati, ati is always cheeper. and it never let me down. ...except my first 4890 which died by my mistake :)

    I got a 25% discount on the HD5850 i bought (Regular-customer privileges :D ), and considering I've been meaning to upgrade from my old 9800GT with a tight budget, I went for it.

    Wow look. It's my thread but slightly changed and a lot less bickering ^_^. Hopefully this will last. I like ATI because their prices are cheaper and it just works. That and I only play games in 1280x1024 so the 5850 looks excellent right now.

    Eh, I just happen to like WD's logo more than any other hdd logo...I prefer the sound of the Hoover that BFG calls a GTX275 to the Bissell that ATI calls an HD4850 :)

    Sound kinda like another forum member.....lol

    Think he's on CPU/GPU #50 for the year....lol

    Every manufacturer has a card that fails.... even nVidia cards do in fact fail. Take the GeForce 8600GT for example....it failed miserably at imitating a mid-range graphics card (it's performance was closer to entry-level).

    Exactly why I got mine at the time, 280/260 prices were stupid then.

    ATI almost always has lower prices for the same performance, and their image quality used to be much better. I only switched this round for the quiet cooler and looks that matched the theme of my black/blue build. either way, both sides have their pros and cons
