Hello people. I'm new here and hopefully you guys will help me out. I'm building a new computer from the ground up. I got everything figured out except the graphics card. I bought a PNY NVIDIA 7900 GS 256MB PCI-E for $150 (didn't open it yet) already but today I saw an ad for a ATI RADEON 1950 PRO 256MB PCI-E for $199. I'm now confused; should I get the RADEON or stick with NVIDIA? I read some performance reviews on both of them and it stated that the RADEON is the better card in raw power but, in the end, is it really that much better than the NVIDIA? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Personally i now don't think theres much difference between the cards. I would use either one but i do prefer the Nvidia cards over ATI cards. I guess it's just brand loyalty for me as many years ago ATI did me in with their bad software back then. I asked for fixes and all i got was runarounds so i quit buying ATI cards.

I thik they noticed they were loosing too many people to nvidia so they got their act together a bit better now.
