No. AMD for life.
For instance many people stick with Nvidia because they are better at making drivers that work. They may be able to get a better card from ATI, but simply don't want the headache of making it work.
(Again, that's just an example, I personally have never had any major issues w/ ATI drivers. Well once, but it was't that hard of a fix and it was a long time ago.)
Sometimes brand loyalty isn't about price, or performance, but ease of use.
According to fanbois in order for there to be no problems with an MMORPG you have to imagine it isn't there, well, they say ignorance is bliss.It's Lethn...if he doesn't sound pissed off then there must be a rift in the space-time continuum - Ultimo
I third this.
I go with whatever gives the best performance, fuck the price.
GeForce 8800GT happened to be best price and performance when I bought it.
Also, last two ATI cards I bought before the 8800, one fried in 6 months, the other likes to keep turning the screen faggoty shades of pink.

AMD was good.
But their current processor selection is atrocious and not even comparible to Intels line up.
AMD is doing awesome with puma for notebooks offering great integrated performance.
But if larrabee is a success AMD will face a hard time in the puma-like area.
As for graphics... It is weird right now. With ATI finally being on top with the 4870X2 for a single card set up who knows what will happen.
Intels past graphics suck though... GMA 900 anyone? ewwww...
