Customer support is handled by the card manufacturer eg. Asus, evga, HIS so you get good and bad with both on the developer side customer support from ati and nvidia in reallity stops with the drivers, on that front ati have the lead with the excellent catalyst drivers and hydravision and those arent just for one place they are global. Although you look at the x1900 and if you are going for the best(as you would be at that budget) even though it costs more its hands down the best card on the marke so the obvious choice over a gtx, its not that ATI cost more in the US they just are put on a similar price scale to nvidia whereas the price scale here is independant and thus cheaper. Hardwares hardware, at the moment ATI have released consistently the best cards on the market since the R400s and if you want the best in the US you have to pay the price.
Im glad we dont, kinda sucks to be you guys.
