    You can't compare ATi and Nvidia with AMD which has it's own Fab facilities.

    I'd say NVIDIA's faulty cards vastly outnumber ATi's , right now we're jsut hearing more about ATi's because they're fairly new now to the high end gaming market and are under alot more scruteny by the public than NVIDIA who are well established in the market.
    As you stated, the ATI products are being brought to light under a harsher set of standards. Why? Because this is the first time they have had a product that will truly stand toe to toe with nVidia. So since nVidia has had the market share, it stands to reason that they have had more faulty cards... ATI hasn't had the numbers out to have these problems. If I sell one million nVidia cards and only 100 ATI cards, is it any wonder that there are more faulty nVidia based ones coming in for warranty replacement?

    nVidia has always done well by me and I don't see where this will change in the future. And even in the extremely rare instance when I had one bad board, it was immediately replaced with no problems. To me, this doesn't sound like a problem.

    I seem to recall this same conversation when the GF/GF2 was coming out and all the VooDoo3 & 5 owners were flaming nVidia
    "too may problems w/AMD chipsets - won't work correctly w/irongate"

    I don't mean to say that nVidia will go the same route as 3DFX - but the similarities are there....

    Contrary to what some members may think - I'm not an ATi fan boy, even though I've always said that the Radeon series have always had their own merits - although in most past cases the comparative nVidia product was clearly superior in most ways.

    If the FX series never makes it to stores in quantities it will be a shame - I almost certainly would have bought one at some point.

    There was a Geforce 3 MX? I missed that one. :)
