Brand choice or bad luck (which I am more then familiar with when it
comes to computer hardware) would be my only guess.  I've used both ATI
and NVIDIA cards and think they are both just swell.  I never get the
latest and greatest either as I can't justify the price.  But as long as
I stick to the brands I love (ASUS and MSI mostly) I am always OK.  I do
prefer NVIDIA just for their drivers and software though.  I think
that's really the only thing they have above ATI.
