That's not the reason, the reason is Nvidia paid id money so Doom III could run best on their cards.

this has happened countless times before, it's just something people have to deal with... even if you don't agree with it. and for the record I don't agree with doing it.

How much is this video card? I've been wanting a new one, but this one's probably out of my range.

if you already have a high end system, if you have ATI or nvidia, it won't matter, you are still going to have a good solid framerate. Sure, you may lose just that LITTLE bit extra, but it really won't make much of a difference.
