    I am currently looking into purchasing a new video card and have been researching both the Nvidia 4xx and ATI 5xxx cards. Now the advise I have been receiving from these forums and RL is that I should go the ATI route. Unfortunately every time I look at reviews for ATI cards, people seem to non-stop complain about how crappy the recent driver releases have been and that people are better off sticking with Nvidia. Is ATI truly having issues with their drivers or are these people just crazy?

    frankly, on the Mac side, both companies don't have the best drivers. However, on the PC side of things, driver support is amazing. performance is significantly better on the bootcamp partition than on native mac.
