Because they are high performace cards that perform extremely well, also their drivers are rock solid.

It all comes down to personal preference, also you posted in the wrong forum ;)

I buy them as they have all the features and are quick enough with good drivers support at a cost that is right.

End of marketing blurb

I think its a good question. I buy them mainly for the name. I think i first started liking them because of the way they dominated the graphics market by doubling the speed every 6 months back when there were a bunch of companies making gfx cards.

Of course it doesn't hurt that they have the best gpu today as well. :p

It all comes down to personal preference, and for me it was the drivers. As a dual display user I'm very impressed with the nView features of Forceware. I've tried the Radeon Hydravision software and I thought it was horrible. Nvidia definetly has a better grasp on multi-display users.

I also really like Digital Vibrance, in fact on my LCD's it is absolutely essential I keep it on. That's a fault of my choice in LCD's, so if I had an ATI card believe me I'd be suffering. Some claim you can get similar results to DV with ATI cards, but it doesn't look nearly as good I hear.

And in the past I've had far more studdering frame rate issues with ATI cards I've owned, but I have not had such a problem with the Nvidia cards I've owned.

I think ATI makes really wonderful hardware, but it's their driver packages and software I question. In fact one more thing worth mentioning is the absolute aggrivation I've had with ATI TV Wonder and All-in-Wonder cards, their stability left much to be desired for me.
