This is an Nvidia fan site so take it with a grain of salt. You can't come in here and not expect some ATI bashing, especially since ATI has been kicking butt for months now with thier 5800 series cards. Gotta knock'em down some way....can't do it performance wise....miight as well attack the drivers.

My stance is this....Both have great cards w/ great performance. Each have features that attract consumers to buy them....I personally own both.

To each his own what you feel confortable with......don't bash the other for what they buy.....after's a only freakin' video card!!
