Neither of these cards have enough memory bandwidth for AA filtering, the Nv is better with older style games, the ATI at shader intensive games. Neither will much good for DX10, however both have 100% video encoding for 1080i.

Personally, I would go with the Nvidia, a little bit extra for the 86GTS perhaps
