Well thats halfway true..the card that I have does limit the quality of the pics ...but not that much..those look good...but Im still not sure if a should grab a radeon and wait for gf3 price to come down.....

In those two pictures the radeon has far superior texture crispness. But remember if you have a fast geforce, ie an Ultra or GF3 for the expense of speed you can chuck ansitropic filtering on.
At a low level of Ansitropic filtering the geforce is still faster than the radeon AND the picture quality is greater. Highest levels of ansitropic filtering are too slow to use but the picture quality is comparable to the difference in pics with and without FSAA.
The thing to remember though is that the radeon outputs sharper colours too both at 2D and 3D levels. This is unfortunately one thing that nVidia has not matched yet. I would swap my GF3 for a Radeon 64Mb VIVO anyday if I just used my pc for 2D applications.
