The ATI Radeon already went down last week, so if you REALLY cannot wait 1 week, go for the ATI, but I wanr you, Doom3 can NOT be run smoothly on it, except if you download that third party performance patch. I've heard it runs perfectly after that patch, but any legal support will be denied.
Me personally: I have a GeForce2 MX/400 64 MB and can run Doom3 smoothly with everything on the lowest, except resolution set on 640×480. I overclocked it with 55% using a ventilator the seize of the computerbox that immediatly takes the motherboard and cpu as target as well. I didn't just overclock it with tools, I also used the motherboard to put the card under more voltage. It runs smoothly and I can run UT2004 with all the settings on the highest, except the resolution put on 800×600.
I do NOT recommend overclocking or overpressuring your videocard, just go for a new one. I also don't know where you live, so I wouldn't know where to get it online (costs of shipping).

1 euro is 45 pennies
And GT6800 costs 449 Euro and it costs 221 Pounds if Im not mistaken.
That card that you want costs lemme say sumtin like: 70 Pounds?? Maybe less. I earn €121.23 per month. You would earn (with the same job) 50 pounds. So if you would save on a few more months.... You might buy that GT. But if you DRASTICALLY need a new graph card and you can afford the Nvidia, I would say you should go for that Nvidia. It has support for Anti-Aliasing and ATI doesn't. AA-support only comes AFTER the Ati Radeon 9800 PRO. So those with 9800 PRO are very unlucky they didn't wait 3 months to buy a better one. . Anyhow: Just go for that Nvidia.

Oh yeah, I am using a GeForce2 Mx/400 64MB. Overclocked it to unknown speed....
I think it has something to do with the version too, I've heard MX are great versions, but I have also heard the reverse. Well, I don't have trouble with it.
Like I said: I think it has something to do with the version or maybe the brand of your card. You are using Nvidia, but that's only the chip, what brand is it?

No the make of your card will be something like PNY, XFX, Asustek one of Nvidias partners saying Geforce FX is saying the family it comes from like yezpahr card is Geforce MX thats the family, then you've got the model like Geforce FX 6800GT the 6800GT is the model. and the cores or GPU or even processing units, if you will, are all made my Nvidia however, Nvidia give these chips to they partners and they put the chips on a board and sell it. If you still have the box which your card came in it should say on there, or if you look around the card you might find it there as well.
Well I think thats right?
