bet you thought i wouldn't know the meaning
as us nvidia fanboi's often don't get out of mancave to experience awesome new things like dx10.1 and gddr5.
maybe i'm a bit biased towards nvidia, as they've never let me down, they've never failed on me, and never given me trouble (oh wait, there was that sli problem i had with 2 7800gt's, but that turned out to be a bad pci-e power connector on a psu that was about to go titts up, so i guess i will let you have that one...if you really really want to hit rock bottom and continue to dig.)
now the exp with ati, polar opposite, nothing but absolute grief, with desktop and laptop variants. most of the calls i get about graphics cards problem, first thing i say is "let me guess, ati radeon?" and they are all surprised "yes, how did you know?"
I am stating I have had no issues with EITHER manufactor...but you have had NO issues with one and issues with another invalidates my point points towards a bias...if you look at some of my recent posts...I have recommended either ati or nvidia based on the OPs, budget, needs or ultimate goals... If that shows me as a fanboy then there is no hope here...
I know each side has their pros and cons...just tired of the same old ati/amd driver argument since i have multiple ati cards(in crossfire even) and have encountered no issues...and you immediately dismiss the operator error issue from the get go..but claiming nvidia driver installation have no problems or issues...I think alot of these"Help with ATI drivers" issues could be solved with a simple google search..
