I don't care which card ends up better but I'm praying for the GT300 series, soon hopefully! If they wanna make any money for Christmas that is...

Maybe that way prices will come down enough from ATI so that it makes a good boxing day gift? :P

I want Fermi to be better because I believe Nvidia is moving in the right direction. ATI has simply made a faster card, Nvidia has on paper a faster card that can do much more. I want to encourage innovation.

Much more form a professional, technical standpoint. Unless they can put all these new technologies they're including towards more FPS vs. workstation tasks, then hats off to them. To me, at the moment, it seems they're marketing their GPU's as "Look we can play games and all, but it's even better if you use it for *insert task here*"

And Fermi is still gonna be a big, hot, number crunchin', transistor packin' power hungry machine. But hopefully it's worth every watt.
