Same here. During the past few years, I've dealt with three different nVidia cards and one ATI card, and the ATI card gave me lots of problems, mostly due to hardware conflicts, but also due to crashes with certain games.

Knightcrawler:
Yeah nVidia cards are usually a bit better.  There's many games that are opimized to run on nVidia cards.

obryn:
I'm an nVidia fan, too, overall - also because of competent driver updates.

Keep in mind that ATI and nVidia trade places for the lead spot regularly.  I think ATI is technically on top now, but they've also had a history of bad supply problems and vaporware releases.

Check http://www.hardocp.com for the latest news.  They're pretty reliable.

I believe WoW which I am now playing is one of them.

kryyst:
More and more games are becoming Geforce prefered because ATI has been having a horrible track record on their drivers, especially for their newer cards.  The one big advantage ATI usually has is that they are usually cheaper for an equivollently powered GeForce. Geforce had a huge wake up call driven to them by ATI about 3 years ago.  Since then they've learned from their mistakes and are making the superior product.  However for some reason on non-PC's ATI is usually wining the race.  Many consols have ATI chipsets, Apple has been heavy with ATI for years and their graphics are phenominal.  ATI's problem is pretty much entirely software based.
