which card would you get either the Radeon 6850 or the GTX 460?

I researched the benchmarks and it looks like they are sort of even with each winning in different games, but I'm concerned about the 6850's driver's.

Are the driver's something to worry about with the 6850 (or either cards)?-- I was going to get the sapphire model on newegg.

6850 is avg 5-15% better than GTX 460 1GB, both cards overclock like devils, and if you're talking about latest drivers then i'd say that nVidia has lately more problems with their drivers than AMD, what are your full specs and resolution? which games you prefer?

Nvidia has driver problems as of late? I'm not going to knock ATIs latest drivers, they are much better then in the past, but there is nothing wrong with Nvidias at all..

Anyway, what is your system specs.

at higher resolutions *which start from 1920x1080* 6850 starts gaining more performance over 460

Sweet, which manufacturer has the quietest PCB (all solid (SSD) capacitors etc)?
