Exclamation $200 VC, Nivida or ATI?

Hey gents, if you were to buy a $200 video card today, what brand would you buy and why? Which cards out there would you recommend for non-over clocking but highly reliable and stable performance? Thank you all in advance for your feedback!

When SKY says wait, it is always a good idea to wait. He is very helpful in these situations.

Yeah I've been pushing Paitence on new GPU purchases for a while now.
I just hate it when sky says wait too....

oooh, looking forward to next week. Even though it's completely irrelevant to me, I still enjoy reading about new product launches.

Nothing will immediately go on sale this time as board partners aren't seeding cards for launch. Maybe a few weeks after release though.

Review will be up at the VERY beginning of next week and I KNOW you'll be happy with performance.

NOOOOOOOO, please, don't say that, I'm about to buy a 6850 or 6870...
I'm tired of waiting and I don't want to pay more than 200$ (my hard drive seem to be dying and I want a ssd)...

Dammit, might have to wait now...
