    msi usually use nvidia chipset based cards. so you might as well buy a card made by nvidia themselves goto nvidia.com and see whats what. also ati are the other big name in cards ati.com

    its all personal preference which company you go with.

    some people like ATI and others like nVidia. each have their own advantages.
    MSI make good nVidia cards but they seem to be expensive.
    Sapphire make good ATI cards.

    as far as i know, Nvidia don't manufacture video cards?

    aside from "reference" cards which they give to manufacturers and reviewers.

    ATI is good for speed
    Nvidia is good for image quality

    ATI makes great hardware but has really crappy drivers.
    nVidia may not score as high but they use the same driver suite for just about everything.

    I just built my first comp and could not get the drivers for my ATI Radeon 9000 Pro to load.
    The nVidia drivers leapt off the CD and were installed no sweat.

    A theoretically better card is no good if the drivers won't work.

    ATI all the way. I used to do the Nvidia thing until I got my hands on an ATI.

    BTW, if you use ATI, you need to have Omega's drivers
