ati v. nvidia
 
What company is behind your video card?

ChAiNz.2da 05-05-2006 12:17 PM

nVidia baby!... Dual DVI, Dual SLI 6800 Ultras... wooooooooooo :rock:

Hoping to upgrade at a later date, but haven't ran into any problems thus far... that and just saw the quad dual link QUADRO FX5500 SDI (specialty) card.. whoah... :eek:

ChAiNz likey.. :nod:

Crow_Nest 05-05-2006 01:03 PM

nVIDIA always! Go 6800LE! Although i cant use anymore cause my CPU fried...

stingerhs 05-05-2006 04:08 PM

well, its Nvidia by necessity and not by choice. i was really wanting ATI to release an AGP compatable board based on the X1900, but since they've quit developing products for the AGP bus, i had to "settle" with an Nvidia GF 7800 GS (via BFG Tech).

don't get me wrong, i love how powerful my card is. its just that i wanted the capabilities of the X1900 which allows you to use both HDR lighting and Anti-Aliasing at the same time. plus the extra pixel processors really help things out. and i say that not because i'm always looking for the latest and greatest but rather because i don't plan on upgrading my computer (or buying a new one) for at least a year, probably 2.

I am pretty sure it's Nvidia...so Nvidia it is.

Samnmax221 05-05-2006 06:23 PM

Nvidia even though they broke up 3do

RoxStar 05-05-2006 09:52 PM

nVidia 6600 ftw

Samuel Dravis 05-05-2006 10:00 PM

ATi. I have a Radeon 9800 Pro on my old computer, and a Radeon X800 AiW on my main gaming computer.

My lappy has Intel graphics. >.>

Det. Bart Lasiter 05-05-2006 10:00 PM

7800 GTX 512s in SLI mode. I hate not being able to play Oblivion without HDR and AA switched on though.

Jeff 05-05-2006 10:33 PM

I'm an nVidia fanboy. I only have a TI 4200 right now but I'd really like to upgrade to a 6800 or even a 7800 soon. Actually I really just need a new computer.

JohnLocke 05-06-2006 12:24 AM

I have an ATI 9600SE
Weak by today's standard. But I've never understood the idea of shadow improvement. In BF, if I turn shadows off, Dark Troopers become readily visible in areas where there would be shadows. Or any enemy for that matter. Shadows only hinder your ability to see enemies. AND turning them off improves performance.

TheMichal 05-06-2006 05:47 AM

nVidia of course. Galaxy 6600GT 2xDVI -> EaW looks awesome!

zodiakRUS1 05-06-2006 07:02 AM

my nVidia

popcorn2008 05-06-2006 12:29 PM

I use ATI, but I really don't have much of a prefrence.

Reclaimer 05-07-2006 12:02 PM

ATI for the record!!!

urluckyday 05-07-2006 05:17 PM

Currently, nVidia is behind my card, but I'm moving over to ATI soon because I'm not that impressed by the quality of the card that they boasted.

wuyanxu 05-08-2006 01:49 PM

nVidia because i've always bought their product and my first impression of ATI is that its Linux's drivers are hard to install when my friend had trouble installing it on his laptop.

go nVidia!!!

Lord_MalaKdoggk 05-08-2006 02:11 PM

ATI

...and I'm still pissed that LA refused my support request because my video card wasn't in the 'supported' list. Guess what - I finished BOTH K1 and K2 with below minimum spec'd video card and without incident (was a missing cutscene file from K2)

It's true that ATI seems less supportive of linux drivers than nVidia. Late last year they released a driver incompatible with recently released kernel versions. I had to spend a good chunk of my day writing a patch for it.

nVidia on the otherhand has support for pretty much all of their card's functions (correct me if I'm wrong). Where as ATI typically doesn't have drivers for ATI staples, like TV-in on the All-in-Wonder line.

Sadly I didn't have a say in the specs of my new laptop - it has an ATI chip in it. I'm just lucky I've had experience dealing with their issues on my other boxes.

I have an XFX nVidia 6600GT overclocked from 500mhz core/1000mhz memory to 550mhz core/1100mhz memory. Runs Half Life 2 on my outdated AMD Athlon XP 2000+ and 384MB RAM with almost no problems whatsoever (it goes to about 5-10 fps for the first 5-6 seconds after it loads, and then goes to 30+fps, but that's just because of my low amount of ram).

DarthDeceptus 05-10-2006 03:12 AM

ATI X800, and a Slackware Linux. The ATI works fine on my Linux.

Canderous_ordo1 05-10-2006 06:00 AM

i use ati video card for gaming and dvd but for just normal things its nvidia so guess i use a bit of both

Dark Sad Shadow 05-11-2006 04:07 PM

Nvidia! Gforce 6600!!

i had an Ati!

but nvidia its a lot better :D

Niner_777 05-13-2006 11:59 AM

I'm pretty sure I have nvidia.

Char Ell 06-18-2006 12:20 PM

NVIDIA 7800 GTX on my gaming PC and NVIDIA GeForce 4 Go on my laptop.

For some reason I've got this notion in my head that NVIDIA cards match up better with Intel processors and ATI cards match up better with AMD processors. And since both my systems are Intel driven I guess that is why I've gone with NVIDIA graphics. Not saying the above is true, just stating my reasoning, faulty though it may be.

Ray Jones 06-21-2006 08:25 AM

nVidia for me it is.

A GeForce 420 Go w/ 16mb VRAM. X)

It has "shaders are overrated" written on it. XD

But I can patch Wine to trick the games lol

Peff 06-21-2006 08:42 AM

My computer has ati radeon 9700...

CSI 09-18-2006 02:56 AM

This is hard to say because I used ATI Radeon 9800 earlier, but now I use Radeon X1300 and nVidia Quadro FX 1400 simulatously.

Samurai DD 01-29-2007 04:40 PM

ATI Rules!!! I've got a X1950 512MB. I've always preferred it over NVIDIA.

It

Mine is the 32mb 'upgrade'. It plays Kotor, though, so I'm happy. :D

Darkkender 03-05-2007 11:59 PM

I always buy Nvidia. I've seen it outperform ATI everytime I've run it on comparable cards side by side for bench testing. Not too mention I have encountered much fewer failures of the chipsets on Nvidia's side.

I think I have a 64 MB Geforce 4 MX. Underpowered, outdated GeForce cards ftw!
