Both are fast, the newer ATI's have some buggy drivers still. I got the Xtasy Gforce 3 Ti200. It is very, very fast. I am super pleased. Nvidia has very stable drivers for it. Works great with Windows XP. I'd get which ever one had the features you like the best.

I've been eyeing the ATI 8500DV myself. True - that drivers are a bit flakey but it's got all the functions I want and drivers are being constantly updated.

Here's AnandTech's performance test: [url]http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.html?i=1580[/url] Also see the whole series of articles on the 8500 under their video-card section: [url]http://www.anandtech.com/video/index.html[/url]

Can the newer Nvidia cards display on two monitors at once? Monitor and TV? I have a Geforce 2 Pro with TV out but it can't support more than one display at a time which is a pain in the ass when I try to output to video.

ATI has always had a flakey history with drivers.

Stupid question, but what is "TV Out"? And would my video card(64 Meg nVidia GFroce3 Ti200) be likely to have it? Does this card ofer anything but fast graphics? TV anything? Cool abilities that are worth exploring? Thanks.
