I have had both and there is no advantage partcularly between one manufacturer or the other in the long run, if either have a good idea the other copies it, look at sli its just a copy of an old ATI system, which ATi have reinvented to beat sli.
The only preferance i have is the best card for the least money and of late ATI has won hands down. Maybe nvidia will realise there error in there ways and price there cards more appropreiatly and competitevely in future.

And warriorscot, I think you are right with their latest models. I mean, the 7800 was reputed to be some sort of breakthrough, but unfortuneately has fallen short. At the moment, ATI has the upper hand. What I was talking about before was overall perforamce and stability with their models from the past. Generally speaking, ATI just had more problems with game instability, overheating, and incompatability issues than Nvidia had. Looking back, I'd say Nvidia has a better story to tell. I'd love to open discussion on it though.
Also, I heard that the new 7800 has 24 pipelines. According to you, that means the new ATI cards will have 48? Did ATI really pull that off? I'd love to see the article about it...

ATI have always been the leaders in new technology thats why there hardware was so flaky they released it before it was really ready(ATI had dual gfx card technology years ago one of the reasons crossifre is better is it is ATI second bash at dual gpu systems). They seem to have learned the lesson though and have recently let nvidia release new technology early while they perfect the product it is a good attitude and can only benefit the consumer. They have also eliminated multiple pixel pipelines in there latest core that they are supposed to put in the xbox 360 it uses one super pipeline supposedly for enhanced performance. For PCs that core will come out as R580 or R620 by the looks of it.
