    ATI stuff rocks, I don't touch Nvidia stuff anymore. Had too many good experiences graphics wise. Aka I've seen side by side the better looks of an ATI card, I'll give up a few frames per second to look better.

    I have a 9800 pro and a 9800XT and love both of them...had a nvidia ti 4600 and it did ok, but I will always go ATI now.

    when it comes to drivers... Nvidia has always had the edge. My dad has had lots of problems with ATI on his video-PC. Hes run a AIW 8500DV and more recently a AIW 9800. With both cards, he's had problems. Its got to the point now where he's just going to get the newest nvidia card there is and buy a seperate TV tuner / capture card
