Neither. Nvida has driver stability, but they're card eats up two bays and is a touch slower. Ati has the pure speed, and a one slot card, but they're drivers always need fixing.

I remember those little guys. Such nice preformance for the time, but such little compatibility...

I'm with Tulatin on this one kinda. It's like AMD vs Intel. How do you truly compare the 2 in a fair comparison? Maybe if you ran the same clock frequencies and the same drivers... Hmm... can't do same drivers.
Both cheat on their benchmark scores. So how do you see who is better? Just because Nvidia has way better drivers doesn't mean that their chips are better.
So my answer is _____________ currently.

Voodoo was my favortie, Now I have a nivdia and a ati card, the ati has more power and his faster, but the nivdia card just renders better, espically when it comes to games like Operation Flashpoint or anyothr game which will switch from day to night well your playing.

It's easy to see nVidia and ATI are both world-class, you have to check which one works best in your favorite game(s).
