I definitly agree with you. I'd rather have a build thats different than one that everyone has.

nah, brand really plays a big part for me, even though a card may have better performance at the time, drivers especially in the era we live in now can play a big part, following trends you can see if ATI/AMD or Nvidia is pumping out the better drivers faster and more consistantly, long gone is the day of great drivers 0_0

Nvidia is cooler anyways, red sticks out far too much on the green PCB of most mobos

exactly. i remember the geforce 5 vs 9xxx era. It was stupid not to get the ATI 9800 over the 5900 even if you were a fanboy of nvidia.
Personally i like to save money, so red card on green mobo + some cash in my wallet doesn't bother me at all.

When it comes to CPU's there aren't many brand to choose from. , but for video cards. I would rather pay $20 for a xfx or evga just because of there reputation. It is human nature to stick with something that has always worked.

My motherboard is a Foxconn C51XEM2AA (Nforce 590 SLI)

and it's one of the best, if not the best AM2 board for overclocking.
