the answers to questions 2 & 3 are purely a matter of your opinion. ati and nvidia each have their ups and downs. it's simply which brand you prefer to the other.

ATI's tend to cost more money, while NVidia's are cheaper and perform better.

Not really...

I would say a problem with ATI cards are drivers.. :\ They might be a bit cheaper, though...
