I'd give Beelzebub a facewash, as I know there'd be plenty of snow down there in hell if nVidia had the capital to buy ATi.

I'm more concerned of Intel or Microsoft buying ATi.

Firstly it would ever happen so I see no need to imagine what would happen if they did. The reason it wouldn't happen is because of the commerce of fair trade and also the monopolies commission.

Ok, I would really hate nVidia then, first 3Dfx then ATI, I would wait for a great Gvoorad kick a** product at more or less $5000 and unfortunately paying for it when my 8500 stops working (like my v3, it worked great for over a year after 3Dfx leaved)
But I wouldn't like the idea, and it will NOT happen
