Hello guys, i have 2 questions.
Firstly, which company is better ATI or nVidia? My friends always argue about which is the better company, and i thought about consulting you professional guys. Although your answers might be a matter of opinion, but if more of you professional guys vote for the same company it'll give me a good idea about which is better.

Secondly, I was thinking about changing my motherboard, as i think it may be damaged. Currently it is an ASRock P4i65GV, is it a good motherboard? Also, when i change my motherboard would my files and such be erased? Sorry im not very good at computing lol.

Anyway thanks guys! :)

Hi there, look take a look at this thread http://www.geekstogo...l=ATI vs Nvidia
The list I posted will give you a rough idea of how the cards pair up. Keep reading through the thread and you will get some more opinions.

As for your motherboard, Go for an established brand, and no your files won't be erased they are stored in you Hard Drive. The only thing you need to watch out for when changing motherboards is compatibility issues, which can be non-existent or can cause you to have to replace most of your computer parts (at least the expensive ones :) ).

The techs here will give you more detail and help you out if your looking to buy a new one, so go ahead and post the rest of your system specs.

Regards,

Mike

EDIT: Company wise they are both good, Nvidia is ahead in performance at the moment while ATI has very good budget cards.
