Depends what for, I have an aging (2 years old, possibly even older) ATI card and it suits me fine, the best for performance? Best budget? Which cards in which ranges? Best value for money?

I haven't tried NVidia cards, so I say ATI simply because thats what I use.

I have used Nvidia, 3DFX, ATI, and Matrox.

Nvidia or ATI are the best and which one is better depends on who has the latest release. It changes every couple of months usually. Either are very good and will more than likely do what you want.

If your not gonna be doing gaming (and why are you in game forums?) then the Matrox cards are good 2D cards but their 3D performance has been lacking since the ancient days of the Matrox Millenium

I have always liked the Nvidia drivers because they were easier to install and I had less problems with them.

But ATI since they have come out with their Catalyst drivers have done very well and you can always use 3rd party drivers like Omega.

I currently have 2 AMD machines running Nvidia cards and a P4 running a ATI All In Wonder card and I have no complaints.

The XP2200 machine's current Ti4200 is dying from overheating damage suffered 2 years ago and will be replaced next week with a Radeon 9600 because the price is right.

But generally I prefer Nvidia because I have had less compatibility issues with games with them. Latest ATI card for gaming I had was a Radeon 7500 2 years ago.

I have a rather crappy computer, but its running an older ATI card, its suited well for the past few years. One of my friends also has an ATI on his pc and whenever we play games on his they look pretty good and run well. When I get a new pc (preferably with the new AMD 64 bit processor), I think I'll get an ATI card.
