This is pretty much personnel opinion. The 4890 either ties or beats the GTX 275 in every game AnandTech reviewed the cards with. Not to mention Phsyx is definitely not a selling point. It does absolutely nothing in games that do not use it and there are not many well known games that use it. Maybe it will be something work paying the extra money for in the future, but right not it is not worth it. I would rather put that extra $50-$100 on a nice CPU cooler or extra RAM. I cannot speak for driver support as I do not own an ATI card, but I know it is not as bad as it used to be. There are problems with drivers on both sides, its just that Nvidia decides to leak the majority of them.
