Meh, I don't need a 560, all I really need is a 550, and I personally don't like Amd, Intel in my opinion is better.

Be that as it may, but Intel doesn't own NVIDIA (yet). So a simple ATI card works just as hard than any NVIDIA at the same level. IMO.

However, Nvidia cards have a better driver which is why I like them more than ATI.

I never had any problem with any ATI cards or drivers. But maybe I'm just the lucky one. :P

I didn't say they failed, but Nvidia has better ones than ATI, and trust me ATI cards start to stop working after a couple of years, constant errors.
