ATI and NVidia In The Same PC

    I'm considering getting a GeForce 6800GS video card, along with a TV tuner
    card based on ATI's Theatre 550 Pro chip. Is anyone using such a
    combination? I'm a bit leery about combining products from two rival
    companies, but apparently the 550 Pro is the chip to beat right now and I
    really prefer NVidia for gaming. TIA

    You should ask on the ATI forums about that "chip to beat" claim.
    I've read dozens of horror stories about it.
