I feel for Nvidia. If you check the benchmarks on Half Life 2 at tomshardware you can see that the Nvidia line up sux compared to Ati. My 9600 Pro is kicking th shit of the 5900 Ultra. My $170 card is kicking the shit out of a $500 card!!! Then for Nvidia to be humiliated by the Half Life 2 rep/spokes person, that must have hurt. Now it has been strongly confirmed that Xbox2 and Gamecube 2 will BOTH be incorporating ATi cards NOT Nvidia. Sad Sad Sad SAD

Yeah it's funny because I'm here at a convention in San Jose, and I passed by the nVidia corporate center off San Tomas Expressway (which looks very nice) and I wondered how long they would even have that building for :) The funny part is that not less than 2 years ago I was their biggest supporter and now, I root for them dirty canadians (ATI). You really have got to hand it to ATI for being the underdog and taking the crown away from the KING of graphics cards for 6 years. The Radeon 9700 Pro absolutly kicked everyone on their asses and to this day still beats 95% of the cards nvidia has brought out. The nVidia 5950 is a joke and a half, loosing to the high end radeon series cards by a good margin in most games and the 9800 XT is currently the fastest card on the planet... if you've got 5 hunny to blow off...

nvidia said it doesn't want to do business with microsoft again. that's why ati took over the xbox or something. something microsoft did or said made nvidia lose some sales.

heh a year and 3 months ago all my friends ragged on me for purchasing a Radeon 9500 Pro and they all got a ti4200 or ti4600... today my card still works beautifully and they are forking out money again for an ati card or another Nvidiot card if they're really into pain.

from what i read nvidia was charging microsoft 2x the price for what they were getting.
ati stepped in and said they could do similar or better for 1/2 the cost. so microsoft dropped nvidia.

LOL, Nvidia is full of stupid biotches. They're in no position to try and charge people or companies more, they're asking to be in the position they're in.
