ATI the card has better Image quality, Its an DX8.1 card ...
and is just as fast as the Geforce 3 if not faster.

http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/article/1349.1/

here is one place that did some test with it....
But untill we have many places with simular results...
Just hope the above numbers are 100% correct and ATI does have the prefomance crown
