I'd certainly back it up.  In the communities of users of some open
source projects with a heavy 3D bent (e.g. the Flightgear simulator),
it seems like most use nVidia and are quite happy.  To the extent
that there've been issues, they've been with ATI cards.  I don't
doubt that you've seen lots of complaints from nVidia users; but I
suspect it's because of population size.
