Thanks, I'd prefer to stick with NVIDIA, but only because of brand recognition. Are ATI cards really as bad as this board says?

No, part of the negative stigma associated with AMD dates back to pre-2013 levels. AMD drivers are actually good nowadays, and aside from a few CrossFire issues, AMD GPUs are better value than Nvidia GPUs (especially with game bundle promotions).
However, if you intend to SLI, Nvidia is more reliable. AMD may take the crown from Nvidia once next-generation console gaming kicks into high gear next year, as we wait to see what performance improvements we can expect from multiplatform games designed from the ground up on AMD architecture consoles. --- i5 2500K@4.5GHz|Gigabyte GTX660Ti Windforce OC|G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 8GB|Samsung 840 Pro 256GB|Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 3TB|Corsair TX750M|CM COSMOS

They used be bad a couple of years ago but have improved a lot thanks to the newer drivers.
