AMD, the cards are not overpriced, and run perfectly.
Also they have the only cards with 2gb vram.... I use it all.

I voted "AMD/ATI because of their High-End chips" as I choose my GPU by price to performance, and AMD/ATI's higher-end offerings have usually best for the money IMHO.

I have bought and owned nVidia cards in the past as well. When I built my c2d machine I put a 7900GT in it. Have also had a 7900GTX, 7950GTs, 9600GTs, and a 9800GT 1GB.

I've used both in the past, but was disappointed with the AMD cards. That I used, but never have I had an nVidia card die on me, but I've had an AMD card die. Also the drivers for AMD at least in the past have been less than satisfactory. But nVidia at least seems to be more on top of things, at least in my experience. So I decided that I am now only purchasing nVidia cards, even if they are a little bit more pricey i'd rather have a card left over that I can play with after i upgrade a year or so later Something I could stick in a spare pc. Not just another burnt out pcb and a dusty fan I can add to the pile of busted hardware collecting in my room.

I prefer more known brand manufacturer, cards I've used in the past have been Gigabyte, ASUS, and EVGA.

Nvidia because of their high end chips, i don't care about cost, just performance. SLi GTX 580 > 6990

I've owned both. More AMD than Nvidia. I got tired of lagging AMD drivers. Last pair of AMD 6870's I owned were giving me BSOD on the 10.12 driver update. After that I threw in the towel and went one GTX 580 single card solution.

Price aside, I got what I paid for, the best single GPU card on the market, period. Driver issue gone and hope to have a second by end of summer for my mobo which can only support two PCI2 x16 slots with my 1killo watt PSU.

MSI and Sapphire makes great AMD cards and for EVGA for Nvidia. All three are great companies.

Performance/Dollar*Watt

It's all about doing the most with the least. Like the principle of overclocking.

Until they can teach the ATI to fold, I'm sticking with nvidia.

When something useful gets discovered from folding, I'll start caring about folding.
