Main Desktop: Geforce GTX260
Laptop: Geforce 7900GS
HTPC: Geforce Ti4200

Those are the ones that I have hooked up and I actively use, the rest have either old nVidia cards (think TnT2 era) or 3dfx cards in them.

main: HD 2900PRO 1gb
secondary: 9800PRO 128mb all in wonder AGP. thing still runs games from 2006 on low graphics surprisingly. buddy of mine is using a 256 9800pro in COD4 at 1028x764 on low textures at playable framerates lmao

i also have a riva TNT2 and a 9600PRO 128mb sitting in a box somewhere, as well as a semi working 6600 256 PCI-E which i only really use for testing for other hardware issues anymore.

I'm running ATI on all of my machines: HD3850 512MB, X800 GT, 9600 Pro, and 7500 AIW. In my mom and brother's machines I have Geforce cards, the 6200 and 8600GT respectively.

Surprisingly all the games I own and play often work just as well on my brother's 8600GT as my HD3850. I really need to buy new games, because I did test the Crysis demo out on both of our computers. The 8600GT was only, barely playable at all medium settings while my HD3850 was more playable at all high settings.

4th PC - nvidia 6200 PCI (dual PIII Tually system, just for old time's sake.)
HTPC - ATI/AMD 3650, because of the HDMI out w/ multi-channel audio.

When someone asks a very general question in response to one of your posts, it's good manners to explain the intent of your original post.

there was nothing general about your reply.. it was a specific insinuation, and you were who started it.

The Poll was Across Three Forums, and Short, and Sweet... Nuf Said !

Attacking that person (who had good intentions) not only pisses off that person, but also demonstrates to others that might be reading the thread that you're...how shall I say? Less than gracious.

<---And that public opinion really just flushes away any good you may have done in said thread.
I'm sure you understand...you being all smart and all.

Put the shoe on the other foot Now !!
Let me refresh your memory !!

You are incredibly defensive for having been asked a simple question.

In your post above, you combined text from my two posts. That's just being sneaky.

My original reply to this thread wasn't an insinuation, insult, jib, jab or anything but a simple question. I meant absolutely nothing mean, offensive or anything else.

My REPLY to your personal attack was polite and to the point.

By the way; you still haven't answered the question. Do you work for Via?

I use all ATI, yet not an ATI fanboy or anything. Every time I was on the market for a video card, ATI seemed to have the best bang for the buck at the time.

2D days...
First was a 3DFX voodoo 3
Then 3dFX voodoo 4

3D days:
Radeon 8500. Great card back in the day.
Radeon 9800 Pro Mac
Radeon 9800 Pro PC
Radeon X1950 Pro AGP (currently in 2nd rig)
Radeon 4850 (currently in main rig)

Primary - 8800GT 256MB about to become 8800GTS 512MB :D
Secondary - 8800GS
Tertiary - 8800GS
Laptop - ATi X2300
HTPC - 9600GT

First three run F@H 24/7 which is why I run nVidia right now. 8800GT 256 going into my mother's system this weekend once I get the 8800GTS installed in my main rig. HTPC unfortunately gets hot as hell if I run F@H (it's in a tiny case in an enclosed entertainment center) so that one is turned off when not in use.

I crank about 13k ppd from the three 8800 cards.

Still running my X850 Pro. Haven't gotten around to picking up a new video card yet. I think I need to replace my PSU first.
