I'm looking again to replace my 6 year-old PowerMac G3 by a G5, now that I can get one in less than 3 months. I'm wondering which graphic card to buy, the Nvidia GeForce FX 5200, or the ATI Radeon 9600 or 9800 Pro? Nvidia does a terrible job in giving any useful information on their web site, beyond marketing gibberish (their PDFs are heavy scanned images of their glossy paper brochures, unreadable). ATI provides much more useful information, notably what interests me: the resolutions and maximum refresh rates (in Hz) for analog monitor display modes. I'm not interested in those beauty contests like how many zillions frames per second a card can spit out in such or such game, what's important to me (until I get a LCD screen) is how stable the image is on my 21' CRT screen for the kind of work I do on the Mac (DTP/web/photo/video). Unfortunately, the best card seems to be the most expensive one (the 9800), and I've been unable to find that simple refresh rate/resolutions info for Nvidia's cards!
I would greatly appreciate some advice here!
