Nivida always. Just plug it in load drivers and go. With that being said I think ATI has come a long way and can't say I'm not going to give them a good look on my next build due to price and performance and the fact XFX is now offering them.Lifetime warranty is always a big part in my decisions with graphic cards.
But most likely will still go with 2 GTX 460's in SLI or 1 480 but who knows what will be avalible when the time comes. Fabe

I've only had one ATI card ever some years ago but quickly changed it to nvidia. Their drivers are amazingly friendly, and im such a physx/cuda fanboy, can't help it. My 480 SLI setup makes me a happy guy

I'll say what I do ever time this question comes up. I've never had an issue with either of two ATI cards I've had. I hear all this talk of driver problems and I can honestly say it has never happened to me. I install all the new drivers as they come out with no fuss. I had an Nvidia 8600GTS for a while too and to and it gave me no bother either. I will be sticking to ATI for my next card.

As I have seen, ATI drivers work for some and not for others...
My friend bought the exact same card at the exact same time in his similar rig, and he had no problems with his.
Not sure what the deal is with ATI's drivers.....

With XFX, you need the warranty - they aren't the quality brand they used to be.

(2 out of 3 dead XFX cards has personally put me off the brand)

Well I have heard people say that if you run AMD with ATI it seems to work best so this may be the thing to remember. Personaly I cannot say never really looked into it as I have also always only been with Intel

I've owned single card implementations of both and have been happy
Radeon 9700 Pro
GeForce 6800
Radeon X800XT
GeForce 7600GT
GeForce 9800 GTX+

If I were to buy another card this moment, without question it would be a Radeon 5850. Best bang for the buck, extremely quiet card, low power consumption.
