As far as Hardware not really no, each company has its own little way of swaying people. It's really just up to you as a customer to decide which is best. For me I love EVGA Great Quality, and great Customer Support.

sorry avocade, but thats completely wrong. When it comes to Litecoin mining for example an AMD card gets about double the work done, compared to the equivalent Nvidia card = earns double the money for same electricity cost. And of course it all depends on which card works good with which board or doesnt. you cant just randomly put a lot lot of good parts (stand alone) together and expect a to get a flawlessly working high-end system. Some RAM modules cant work with specific boards either and so on...
@Gremlin: what do you want the card for? what mainboard do you have?; and if its for gaming purposes , what is the best card for you may even depend on your favorite games. When they test graphic cards for gamers the important magazines and sites make benchmark and performance tests for various top games and a card thats practically beaten by another in 90% of tests may still be the best for your favourite game. You will however need to some research. Hope I could help a little.

Except you missed that they were talking about board OEMs like ASUS, Sapphire, Gigabyte, EVGA, XFX, etc. and not about AMD vs nVidia. When it comes to the OEMs all you are comparing is warranty, cooling, and customer support.

my bad... ...but you are raising another important point with the cooling here, which shows that its not just a question of whom you like more as a company.. Thx for the hint.

It matters as well and as much as in any other thing.

EVGA is the best on NVDIA side, followed by Gigabyte and Asus.
Sapphire, and then Asus, are the best picks among AMD video card makers.
