Yes I am going for ATI.
3 reasons.
1. Better driver support (I like catlyst and ati tool)
2. I feel safer (Idk why)
3. Cheaper. Or will be.

You wouldn't rather go for a $35 dollar more GeForce 9600GT with Nvidia's weekly driver updates?  I'm not kidding man they have a new driver every 24 hours or so, here is their inside server:

They are also have always some "optimizations" to speed up fps in trade for quality.

I also have an ATI card and for not that hardcore gamers and HD3850 or HD3870 is just fine.

I agree with aznstriker92 , I like ATI more and much more than nVIDIA , I know that one of it's reasons is the better video playback capabilities and I love ATI's Windows drivers unlike it's Linux drivers ATI's Linux support is terrible it's really hard to make a card working and when it is it's performance is terrible in against nVIDIA , i think maybe the reason is because of nVIDIA's cheating in a few years ago about Geforce FX series in MadOnion's 3Dmark i've got no clue , but I prefer ATI to equivalent nVIDIA competitor ,
and also there's another reason about why I love ATI , it's driver naming scheme is just great compared to nVIDIA which i never understood it's terms Smiley

Here are some power consumption tests for the E8500

http://en.hardspell.com/doc/showcont.asp?news_id=2295&pageid=2296

Turn off C1E and EIST and turn on DES. The E8500 is 6.976W, 4 phase power supply



PA 98W when idle, from the picture we can see it is 4 phase.



When load, DES changed to 8 phase power supply, power consumption is 29.39W



When load the PA is 128W, DES 8 phase power supply.
