I guess the only thing I can say is ATI seing as both of the graphic cards that I've bought (Radeon 7200 and 9800 Pro) were ATI built. They work as well as I need them too :)

I've heard from lots of people that they use ATI and it is very good. I purchased a PNY GeForce FX 5500 because I just needed a really cheap 128mb PCI card with Dual Monitor capabilities (and it came with Madden 2004 for free), and there was a similar ATI at the store but with no dual monitor.

I like Asus cards and I am going to be trying an Albatron I have heard great things about. I usually prefer nVidia over ATI because the driver support seems better most of the time. This is really true inder Linux.

Another vote for ATI (powercolor and sapphire may be good too, haven't tried them yet). Gaming... does playing commander keen on a 286 count? (I'm not a gamer at all)

Been happy with my MSI (nVidia)-
1. Good quality
2. Good service and quick response to support/replacement calls
3. Never seen anyone with an MSI card saying it was a bad card
4. Good driver support and updates
5. Well documented manual
6. Wide availability at a range of price-points

Pretty much all (even new) games play fine on my (year old) gfx card, so draw your inferences. ;)

I have an Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 64Mb on my dell laptop and an Nvidia TNT2 on my desktop, I'm not playing games so i don't need powerful cards.
