    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or Nvidia G-Force 6-series?

    I just got a box full of used parts. Among the ruble were two video cards labled "NVidia G-Force 6-series" and "ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256". I'm not familiar with either card. Both did boot up on a test machine. What are the pros and cons of these two cards under Hardy? I'm planning on putting together another box for my kids. I'm more of a CLI guy myself so I've not kept up with all the video cards out there.

    Hi and I like both cards but for the easier to configure I would stick with the nvidia card. If the kids will be playing some games, nvidia 6000 series would be better IMO.
