NVIDIA as I've said before their product is great but their drivers suck and on the other hand there is ATI monthly releases of drivers

Basically every driver they release is optimized for a specific game. Want to play Crysis, you need 169.04. Want to play Hellgate London, you need 169.01. The problem is that they assign specific developers to work on specific games as part of the "The way its meant to be played" program, and therefore no single driver gets all the benefits. It sucks, and it needs to change. These drivers are meant for the games listed there: Portal, Jericho, Rally Revo, NHL 08 and European Street Racing. It's been proven already that 169.04 uses IQ hacks to get higher framerates run it detects a Crysis executable. Rename it, and you get the IQ back but lose the frame rates. Bah.
