Thanks for your reply i should have put this in the original post but i want to go with a Nvidia card.I have always purchased ati but have had some serious driver issues since omega fell off the earth. Even tho he is back i dont want to end up in the same situation i am with my 1900xt driver and css.
Well, i always prefer nVidia too, but at this time. ATI is the best option price/performance. Or you can get a GTX260 'till fermi comes out, and change again the GPU.
