I disagree. WIth inferior drivers and a company that is about to go bankrupt, you had better get an Nvidia graphics card. AMD is about to be history. Goodluck with getting driver updates for that card this time next year, let alone trying to have a company honor the warranty on a 7970 card...NUFF SAID!
You realize that it is still ATI making the Radeon cards, now they are just a subsidiary of AMD. If AMD goes bankrupt (which I doubt), ATI will probably be sold off to another company (Intel, Samsung maybe) or go back to being its own organization.
Also remember that at one point Apple was on the brink of bankruptcy and now they are the largest and most successful company in the world.
