I believe NVIDIA can lead in gaming experience because of PhysX. But AMD also capable handle Eyefinity with Single Card while NVIDIA need SLI to enable that.
The only thing I could see NVIDIA lead is at GTX 570 and Radeon HD 6970 range. 570 is cheaper but performs quite similar to HD 6970. But 570 also have PhysX which HD 6970 doesn't have. In Single monitor, GTX 570 gives you more than what HD 6970 can provide.
Other than that is where GTX 580 sits because AMD doesn't have solution at GTX 580 price range.
Below GTX570/HD6970, we can clearly see Radeon HD 6950 performs better than GTX 560 Ti. When go to even lower price, you can find Radeon HD 6850 beat GTX 550Ti by quit a margin although it only cost slightly higher.
Above GTX 570/Radeon HD 6990, GTX 590 is fighting hard with HD 6990.
Most of the time, in same price range, AMD Card is slightly faster than NVIDIA Solution. Their power consumption is better as well.
But NVIDIA is leading in GPGPU softwares. That's NVIDIA main advantage over AMD.
