reasoning behind this, specially disabling Screen Space Ambient Occlusion on anything but NV?

Different thread dev reply said something about causing weird visual artifacts on non-NVIDIA cards.
A bit chaotic now, too many threads in too many places.

Well since I have xp + an ATI card. What exactly am I losing out on in the so-called expansion? What is ILR and SSAO? Not everyone knows every abbreviation.

its funny nvidia cards have always cost more so dont really care about that point. and the graphics card market goes back and forth every year. do they replace your card with a updated one if your card is vary old.

had one of the very first evga cards gt 7800 and i just sent it in this year and they gave me a brand new gtx 580 because of retail value of my old card.

evga also allows you to overclock the card and if it blows from that they will give you a new one if you did not cause physical damage to the card like a screwdriver knocking something off of it and such. can even change stock cooler and they dont care matter of fact they give you a overclocking tool and say have at it we just wont tell you how to use it
