what? did you get the companies mixed up?
from nvidia's driver section of available downloads (including betas) = 10
ati = 12 + all the hotfixes they released
ati puts out a driver pack monthly, nvidia puts out drivers on a as needed bases.
also nvidia has the performance crown for single gpu cards...
I'm not saying either company is bad, cuz I have no preference, but ASAIK ati puts out drivers more frequently.
I personally would go ati ATM until nvidia gets the low gpu issue fixed with bc2, im still pissed that im playing a game and using 40% of my gpu while my frames will dip into the 30's (gtx480)

By the looks of things you're quite new to this?

So Nvidia.
Less hassle with drivers and they have great prices on their cards now.
My GTX 460 1GB plays anything I throw at it with amazing detail, I wouldn't use anything else.

Nivea?



Not a fanboy, not biased, I've owned both ATI and Nvidia cards...go with whichever cards you can afford. I will say that Nvidia released drivers (not leaked beta's) have been pure bliss. Then again, I really didn't have ALL of the issues ATI/AMD cards (drivers) have been plagued with. Both excellent lines, in the end, it's up to you.

Guys, you are forgetting about the momory clock. If you factor that into your decision then I'm sure you would get a different answer.

NVidia = pricier in some cases but folds well.
ATi = can't fold, but better price/performance.
