Nvidia must die

I had all sorts of problems with my desktop PC running Vista, it constantly freezes and randomly crashes, and sometimes, it can't even shutdown... I blamed Microsoft idiots. I could not even right-click within Explorer, the thing would freeze and ask me to restart explorer... Losing so much productivity with my PC, I thought about returning to Windows XP.

But I finally I realized that the main problem is the Nvidia graphics card. The crap is so hot...

Anyway, I now using a ATI HD series card, and everything is smooth.

We all heard about the story that ALL Nvidia graphics cards are bad period

Yeap, that's true. I used to have a 8800 GTX card in the past and it was a nighmare. Temp. goes crazy after 3 min. of intense 3D graphics, about 96 dgr. C and the fan it was very loud at full speed. Now, I'm happy, I've got 2 HD4850 (non reference) in crossfire and everything is just fine and smooth. I love my 2 ATI cards.

ATI scores big time ;)

AMD must die

I had all sorts of problems with my desktop PC running Vista, it constantly freezes and randomly crashes, and sometimes, it can't even shutdown... I blamed Microsoft idiots.

But I finally I realized that the main problem is the AMD graphics card. The crap is so hot...

Anyway, I now using an Nvidia 9 series card, and everything is smooth...

I blame you. I've been using both Vista (x64 no less) and the NVidia 9800GTX 512MB with NO issues at all. No slowness, no blue screens, nothing but gaming goodness.

Don't blame your stupidity on other people.

I've been using quadro fx 5600 in vista without any issues for the past 6 months. plus we recently added another quadro fx 5600 in SLI too and the machine is running absolutely awesome!!! maybe there is an issue with the heating in your machine...

Maybe I needed a bigger case fan... As Nvidia's CEO said, the silicon is impeccable --- I suppose he had to add "under normal operating temperatures"

My NVidia 8800GTX was pretty OK when on WinXP. After I upgraded to Vista 32-bit the card has been unstable as hell. It sucks! I want my money back. This is on an Intel board and nothing, NOTHING is overclocked.

I might get an ATI or if I can wait long enough maybe an Intel Larrabee GPGPU.

Won't the market kill off nvidia if they put out faulty products. They have to stay in front of ATI at all costs and there is doubt if they can. After all AMD + ATI will be able to make pretty sweet graphics that run cool. Nvidia will have huge problems keeping up on the heat dissipation. Give me your old graphics cards as I can use them for my site, http://unitedstatesvicepresident.com and you can buy an new ATI card.
Nvidia took a big risk and it cost them. Well it cost the shareholders! Intel still doesn't want to buy nvidia which is weird.
