Well I have heard the opinions of a few repectable publications and they seem to think that the Radeons have the most features of any card right now but the GeForce 2's have the best speed. That's about what I know concerning Radeons.

My brother has owned a Geforce2 32MB a VooDoo5500 and now a Radeon 32Meg. He likes the Radeon the best of the bunch, although not by much. The main feature he likes about the Radeon is it's abit more promising for the future with new game designs and DX8 coming out.

I read Sander's article on the Radeon. It helped me decide to buy. I replaced my geForce2 with the Radeon and I couldn't be happier!

Although it's "slower", graphics seem to look much better and, more importantly, it's 100% stable.

Personal benchmarks w/ 3DMark 2000:
geForce2 on 700 TBird 128mb RAM: 6145 3DMarks
Radeon on 800 TBird 256mb RAM: 4675 3DMarks
