nVidia's VDPAU VS ATI's ..... ?
 
Im confused about buying nVidia 9800 GT or ATI HD 4770, In the 1st place I am going to buy this card to play HD videos 720p & 1080i and in the 2nd place to play games.
I was using nVidia 6200 LE which doesnt support VDPAU, So nVidia use VDPAU in the newer cards to play movies, my question is:
* Does ATI have something like VDPAU that have the same video playback performance ?

PS:
Nvidia 9800 GT is more expensive than the ATI 4770.

The closest thing I can see is:

However, I still recommend nvidia, even if you buy a cheaper card, it'll still do better and will be more stable than ATI.
