Would you recommend an ATI 9800 Pro for $200 or Geforce 5900XT for $175? Thanx for the help. :D

Depends on the brands, but I'd lean toward the 9800 Pro anyway.

The cards were a Saphire Radeon 9800 Pro and a Chaintek GeForce 5900XT.

Not all nVidia cards take up two slots.

That went away with the OTES type exhaust, then came alive again with the big heatsinks on the 6800 Ultra (the other two have one-slot configs)

This one's a toss up. With the small price difference and the small performance difference, I'd still lean with the ATI breeze as well.
