Please don't put words into my mouth; I didn't say that.
Nvidia's drivers are not perfect, but from my experience they're much better than AMD's. I think I have a right to that opinion after owning a 2900XT, 4870 Crossfire, 4870X2 quad crossfire, 4890 crossfire, 5970 quad crossfire and 7950 crossfire and then from Nvidia a 7900GTX, 8800GTX SLI, GTX275 SLI and now GTX570 SLI. I have plenty of experience with both camps.
There's always a risk with being an early adopter, and I understand that. In fact I've resigned myself now to never be an early adopter again as I'm tired of playing beta tester. But the 7-series drivers at this point are in clear beta. I've never seen so many bugs on a launch. That card should not even be on the market right now until they work some of the driver bugs out.
