    Nvidia product may be comparable than Ati products on the performance/price point of views. But, on when we look at the end user support, Ati offer is behind the one of Nvidia. When a user paid 300$ for a card, he can have right to a bullet proof drivers update  service and Nvidia make the rule! Once 1998, I never see a driver release from Ati with the quality and peace of mind like the one of Nvidia.

    Hudge! Had problem to install it in my Antec P182 bay clip was in the way. Had to bend a clip bay to be able to install the card.

    I have no problem at all. This card don't emit loud noise. In fact, I found it less disturbing (noise) than my ATI 4870.

    I think Nvidia are more mature than ATI ...
