Both have their advantages and disadvantages, so you can't really say one is better than the other.

AMD
Pros:
-Tends to focus on price/performance.
-Currently has released their generation of cards first and in larger amount than nVidia.

Cons:
-Drivers tend to be flawed and difficult to work with.

nVidia
Pros:
-Holds the performance crown for fastest single GPU card (in gaming)
-Drivers tend to be matured

Cons:
-You may have to pay a premium price for certain cards (i.e. When the GTX 580 was around $500, the GTX 570 only cost $350 and their performance difference was about 10 to 15%).

AMD/ATI have traditionally produced less power hungry cards than nVidia. However, nVidia's GTX 680 has changed that which is mostly due to the fact that nvidia decided not to make it a huge monolithic chip that used for both consumer cards and the Quadro/Tesla cards.

Another useless thread. Just asking for a flame war.
