Exactly Robert, it's not always ATI. There's other competition out there.

But you have probably never heard of those companies till now did yeah?

The ONLY Home user Vidcard Competitor to ATI right now is Nvidia and vice versa.

Wow, "Battle of the Techies".

I've heard of Matrox, thank you very much.

BUT you don't know that. In the next 6-12 months another company could rise up and have a faster chip than the Geforce 6800 Ultra.

Got fraud?

Btw, that's Australian eBay. That price is about half retail of the non-ultra version. I know it is an initial price, but come on, a guy with no feedback selling a 6800U with an initial price of $300? Even CoD option doesn't convince me he is ridgy didge.

Very unlikely. Mostly due to the fact that ATI and nVidia have massively more income than Matrox, and can thus fund their development departments much more. Also, nVidia and ATI are competing on an almost even ground, so they are always pushing hard to get ahead of one another. This means that Matrox, in order to come out with a better chip than nVidia or ATI, would have to stumble on some amazing new technology that the other two's massively funded research and development departments somehow managed to miss.

Matrox makes decent cards for multi-monitor support and the like, but the likeliness of them becoming a competitor in the area of high-end gaming graphics cards is pretty small.
