Nvidia offers built in CUDA and Physx support. I don't know what ATI offers. I tend to stick to Nvidia.

It all depends on your system (and monitor's resolution), your requirements and your budget.

Both manufacturers have advantages and offer good cards which compete well. ATi have DX 10.1 and Havok support with Intel, Nvidia have PhysX and CUDA (CUDA is useful as some video editing programs can use the GPU for extra performance).

The GTS 250 and HD 4850 are near identical in performance with the HD 4770 riding on their coattails.

The two are also similarly priced. It all boils down to how much you want to spend and whether you prefer ATI or Nvidia.

I'm gonna be honest, I've never used ATI and I probably never will as I've always used Nvidia plus I really love the 8800GT Rohan sold me. I do however, really like AMD and I've never used an Intel in any of my builds.

So I guess it just boils down to personal preference. For me, AMD processors & Nvidia graphics.

Not that I oppose Intel, but until I get a job that pays $18/hour minimum (full time), Intel is out of the budget.
