Switched to Nvidia, their drivers are a fail. - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Seriously I have owned lots of Nvidia cards and never Had a problem. Nvidia are awesome. Also I have an AMD card ATM and I was apprehensive at first due to hearing so much about the drivers however I have had 0 problems. I wouldn't even notice I switched apart from ccc looking different. So AMD are also awesome

I've experienced problems using both AMD and Nvida. However, more so with AMD; especially when it came to crossfire. The only problem I had with Nvidia was when I upgraded to WHQL 27x.xx, I couldn't load 3d movies. I found their was a conflict with the DivX player software I installed on my rig. Once I deleted the DivX player, my movies would play in 3d with no problem whatsoever.

News flash: ALL cards have issues with certain drivers. I've owned plenty of both. ATI drivers are much better now but Nvidia drivers are usually better. Today's software is almost equal I'd say. Around the time of my X1900XTX the drivers were so bad it's not even funny, while Nvidia was fine.

The only problem with Nvidia driver i have atm is Crysis 2 flicker still not fixed everything else is fine.
What i see and hear from my friends using AMD cards Nvidia drivers are usually better , especially in Crossfire vs SLI.

Wow sorry to hear you had bad times. I am of the complete opposite i had ATI for two generations- then switched to the green side and have not had an issue as of yet and i play civ 5 on max with no issues at all.

Also on a secondary note i have just built an ati based system on the 5830 for my pal (beleive me i begged him not to buy that ati garbage but people will not be told) i think he started to come around to my way of thinking after attempting to install the latest drivers- needless to say it was back in my workshop with driver sweeper working hard. Lol and this is just to update the graphics driver. forget the awful tearing on COH and the black squares on BC2.

I know its only my opinion that really is irelevant but ATI hardware is awesome their software on the other hand is not.
