I am, quite irrelevantly, See how my charms aren't thusly wasted on you?

You should see how the ladies swoon when I blow my powerful 9cfm
'Dustbuster' over certain critical areas of their anatomy. Which is good,
since I wouldn't want to them to overheat due to all that extra voltage
running unregulated through their acceleration ports. You do know how
important it is to tend to the ladies G-port, right Sport?

Betcha wish you checked us out earlier, dontcha. It's the way it's meant to
be played, or haven't you read the latest memo?!

Thanks for the response ceedee. I figured if I showed up here saying how
much I liked my video card I'd get flamed.... I tried to be
non-confrontational, but I have to come in with my dukes up. What gives.

Anyway, I haven't had a nvidia based card since my tnt2 card (a long time
ago). I had a 64mb Radeon VIVO card which was only mediocre performance
wise. I upgraded to a 9700pro and was happy with the performance but missed
the VIVO functions so I sold that card and got an AIW9700pro.

People talk about image quality being the major difference between Nvidia
and ATI. You guys care to comment. Perhaps someone who switched from ATI
to Nvidia could comment.

Welcome to the group

a more appropriate post would be to tell us if you are
happy or not with the card you have
rather than just stating what it is which doesnt really add anything to

the
mix

anyway enjoy your stay

A buddy, at work, recently switched from nVidia to ATI (9500). He says
he'll never touch an nVidia card, again. He says the quality of the visuals
doesn't even touch the GF4 Ti's. I'm drooling, for the 9700, right now.
Had to get rid of my CPU/memory bottleneck, first. Dropped quite a bit of
cash, on that. So, have to wait another month or so...

Response? I didn't know there was a question. Do you often type for no
reason?
Oh hey, I lowered my cholesterol.

That's right. No one cares.

If the visuals of the ti4200 are so much better than a 9500 then why won't
he touch another nvidia card then? Am I missing something here?
