"illogical choice" not too me....and its my PC
Something's definately wrong. The ATI 4870 is faster than the GTX260, and if you get the 1GB version look out...lot's of AA & AF!! And the 4870 will eat that old 8800GTX for breakfast. Maybe you had some left over Nvidia drivers or posibly a defective card. ATI's drivers are fast and stable, and just as good as Nvidia's,
regardless of what you hear from others. I've used both extensively w/o any problems. Poor performance is usually due to a driver conflict, not the video drivers themselves.
