    Hi guys,

    Which one would you choose?

    I'm Nvidia all the way. The only way I would use an ATI, is if you bought me it and I couldn't afford to get the Nvidia GPU I wanted.

    I.e. The Laptop I'm currently using.

    Acer Aspire 5536:
    AMD Athlon Dual 64 2.1GHz,
    ATI Radeon HD 3200.

    Which is pants. I can't play any games.

    Over 2 years ago I had this laptop and I could play loads.

    Acer Aspire 5920G:
    Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 2.0GHz,
    GeForce 8600.

    I don't know much about current state ATI vs Nvidia laptop graphics. I would guess go with Nvidia.

    But what I do know is that Acer 5920G and its bigger brother the 6920G. Where, and still are really good entertainment and gaming machines. I only sold my 6920G, because of emigrating.

    The one that provides the best bang for my buck while fulfilling my needs. ;)

    Five years ago it was ATI, two years later it was Nvidia, last year it was back to ATI. Next time.... it depends.

    Been nvidia for me. Got a Geforce 6150se in my desktop (not that great) but i dont play any heavy graphics games :p. My 4 year old laptop have a Quadro 1600m and still plays my games just as well if not better than my 2 year old desktop. lol. Also nvidia works pretty much flawless for me in linux compared to the ati stories ive read.

    Nvidia.

    I used to like ATI/AMD back in the early 2000's. I switched to Nvidia probably due to driver issues or something a few years ago. Been going with Nvidia ever since.
