What is your favorite brand of graphics cards, why or why not?

I like graphics cards from EVGA because they're built to last, and also some you can pick up for cheap.

As for the technology, I like NVidia, because they always come out with really good cards. I've never had a major problem with ATI, as I had a Gateway MX6454 with ATI graphics, it was a good machine.

I agree on both counts.

EVGA cards are great. I've never had an over-heating issue with one.

Nvidia always seem to release more capable drivers, but my experience is on the Linux side for that one.

Nvidia is always great for linux.

Would that I had the cash available to compare some! I got a bargain on an ATI Radeon years ago and I've had no reason to change it!

well, nvidia developed the CUDA paralell processing thingy, and since then apple and google and linux have put together openCL (compatible with CUDA)... so if you need to do heavy-lifting computing these paralell processing things are the way to go (everything has it now, actually, if you're buying new stuff).... for video editing or scientific or photoshop work or anything you care to recode for paralell it will be much faster... (some of these graphics cards have 300-1200 processors, it just needs someone to write the code to use them).
