Nvidia GTX 260 Core 216 vs. ATI 4870 1GB

What do you all think? Going to be building a new FS system soon, and was stuck on deciding on a GPU. I've had both ATI and Nvidia cards before, and the Nvidia anti-alising is a pain in the rear end always, since it cant anti-alis in windowed mode, forcing you to use the nHancer driver. Where ATI cards can use AA anywhere from the stock drivers. I also play Battlefield and Crysis, so I'm wanting a higher end card.

look's like you've already made up your mind. I have different motivations for not using ATI. one being, I don't want the chip to fail... i mean there is a reason they are owned by AMD these days... and if 2-3 million broken xbox's isn't enough of a reason for you to not choose them over nvidia, I don't know what is.


I guess if you want to be on the cutting edge go ahead... but the mentioned nvidia product is only slighty slower...
