    I was a huge ATI fanboy before I got my current card and I also felt that there was a good reason not to get a Nvidia card. That 6800GS will smoke an X1600 and is the better choice hands down. You will not regret it.

    the x1600 is not as fast as the gs (just) and as well as that, ATI cards are consistently behind nvidias cards in opengl games (doom3 etc) although this is supposed to have been improved for the x1x00 range.

    edit: casecutter got there before me!
