I've always considered nVidia drivers to be better, and using my work PC confirms this...My drivers crash daily at work, under XP. My most hated things all at work in one place...ATI + XP + AMD. Anyways, thats just me. But yeah, its great how nVidia support physics engines on their GPUs, AFAIK ATI don't do they?

NV Beta drivers are also good.

I never had a issue with them. Cant wait for the new ones to increase SLI Scaling over 80% If them big bang drivers are real :P

Isn't NV Releasing the quad sli drivers for 2009? i heard the quad sli mobos are coming out For 2009 But i think thats a rumor.

>Omen<;4677065 At first look they are value leaders and pretty good performers. However it depends what you want. If you're going for a high end rig that you may very well end up running two cards to upgrade it or just for high res dominance on next gen games, you need to consider how well they scale. Right now Nvidia is well ahead of ATI in that game. One GTX 280 will not quite match a 4870 X2, but two in SLI will beat two 4870 X2s in Crossfire X easily and at a price much lower. [/quote] The only thing incorrect about that statement is the fact that SLI and Crossfire are pretty much equal. Each beats the other depending on which game is being place. For example, Crossfire beats SLI in COD4 and Bioshock, and SLI beats crossfire in Crysis and Quake wars.It all pretty much comes down to what you want to play to make your decision about which you want to go for, SLI or Crossfire.

[quote=>Omen<;4677065] Besides that you get PhysX, CUDA, etc, with Nvidia and as I said above, I feel their drivers are better. Now I'm not saying one 4870 X2 isn't a good deal, but it certainly costs more than one GTX 280, so it should run better. However if you want to dabble into Crossfire and hope ATI comes out with a better Cat driver every time you get one of those killer new games you've been waiting for, go right ahead, I certainly won't try and convince you otherwise.

PhysX, CUDA, etc. is all just marketing hype. You can easily run PhysX and CUDA on ATI cards since its just software after all. PhysX GPU Acceleration on Radeon HD 3850 - Page 21
