If your planning on dual cards in the furture go with the nvidia. SLI is better than crossfire. Both cards are good, I think the nvidia beats out the ati in gaming framerates in most cases but, like you , I'm an ATI guy abd thats the one I'd get. I like the 2d quality alot better and we have less buggy drivers imo.
