Nice read Sky. ofc I understand the 460 FTW choice, the ATI fanboys over at Anandtech went nuts when it was included in their initial review. I still liked yours better.
In my mind, shopping for a $200-$250 card comes down to price (is there a sale), availability (can I get it) and consumer loyalty (Nvidia uses too much power, ATI has crappy drivers etc..).
When ATI releases the newer 6900 series it will be interesting to see if this generation of Fermi's will stay within spitting distance performance wise or if ATI will blow the doors of the barn.
