    nVidia Vs ATI

    Which brand do you guys prefer? Personally I'm an NVIDIA man. I had some trouble with ATI locking up. I when with NVIDIA and never looked back! NVIDIA has given me great products in the past and I doubt they will disappoint me in the future.

    Re: nVidia Vs ATI

    In the past few monthes, i have tryed ATI card. and yes, it was cheaper. I had the bus port on the agp slot go bad. My old geforce 6600gt was not working properly, so I bought an ATI and it was working fine. So maybe the address's in the geforce are a little more prone to coruption with motherboards.

    I have upgraded to a PCI-e card and been very happy since. geforce 8600 GTS OC

    Re: nVidia Vs ATI

    If you use a Nvidia based motherboard, Nvidia video cards seem to be prone to less problems. About 3 or 4 years ago my old ATI All-in-a-wonder 9800 pro card would not function in my Asus A7N8X Deluxe board. Random reboots. The diagnostic file sayed it was an ATI driver causing the problem. So I got a Nvidia GF 5600 to replace it and the computer stabled right out. I put the ATI card in a Intel board and never had a problem. Later a driver update fixed the driver issue, but I had sold the card...So it kinda turned me against ATI.
