Whether ATI will beat NVidia, you wont know until crossfire comes out and is solid on the market, but for competition, NVidia is miles ahead...

Their next mobo chipset and next range of cards are supposed to have the 8x bandwidth unlocked on SLI, so 16x and 16x, and also they are meeting the competition of ATI in their latest driver update that you dont need 100% identical cards for SLI to work, just the same brand of card.

I have always been an NVidia supporter, but I think they are rushing ahead, they already have the edge of the market over ATI and are learning from their mistakes/downfalls before ATI have even hit the shelves... The battle has already been won in my view.
