well, its Nvidia by necessity and not by choice. i was really wanting ATI to release an AGP compatable board based on the X1900, but since they've quit developing products for the AGP bus, i had to "settle" with an Nvidia GF 7800 GS (via BFG Tech).
don't get me wrong, i love how powerful my card is. its just that i wanted the capabilities of the X1900 which allows you to use both HDR lighting and Anti-Aliasing at the same time. plus the extra pixel processors really help things out. and i say that not because i'm always looking for the latest and greatest but rather because i don't plan on upgrading my computer (or buying a new one) for at least a year, probably 2.
See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind
