X-bit labs declares ATI winner in IL-2 FB using the TheBlackDeath.ntrk track
especially when it comes down to AF and AS at 1600x1200.

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/fx5900-r9800_10.html

That and with al the benchmarking test appearing concerning
Half-Life 2, I am now seriously leaning toward buying an
high-end ATI graphics card by the end of this year or at
the start of next year.

NVidia better do something very quick, like releasing the
NV40 before the end of this year or better next month,
or the will be losing a lot of high-end graphics card
buying customers.

Well according to the same website there will be no NV40 or R420 this year. Only the overclocked versions of 5900 ULTRA and 9800 PRO which I would pass on since I will guess they will be way overpriced as the newest and latest always seems to be.

Get a 9700 pro and overclock it.

I have a saphire 9700 non-pro - I flashed the bios, added a $30 cooling kit (Zalman hp80a - and ramsinks) overclocked it way above pro speeds and, with the omega drivers it ties my 9800 pro in 3dmark03 - even with the 9800pro overclocked.

Thing is - if you get a 9700 non-pro you have to make sure it has the samsung ram. 9500 pro is also an excellent card that will run way over spec - but hard to find.

I got my 9800pro free - normally I never like to spend more than $200 on any single component.

PS - I hear 256 meg vs 128 is not worth it - the extra mem is used only at extremely high resolutions and the ram is much more difficult to cool - resulting in lower overclock potential.

RBJ BUMP for steeling my text.

RBJ Has a hard time surfing the internet and moving one to the next page of this benchmark where ATI is declared the winner.
