I have a 9800 Pro and a 5900 Ultra. I've always owned 3dfx and then Nvidia cards. This is the 1st ATI card ever for me. I play racing games a lot. As you know racing games require a lot of fsaa (due to the draw distances) and anisotropic filtering. What I have learned is the 9800 Pro is vastly superior in performance when fsaa and anisotropic are being used. Additionally the image quality is more impressive then the 5900 Ultra.

I hope Nvidia can get it together with the 5900 Ultra, but so far it's sitting on my table and not my computer because it's just not quite up there with the 9800 Pro. Maybe Nvidia can get those drivers working, who knows.
