Let's be clear: 1 year old ATI > current nVidia.

I cannot speak for Intel, as their video hardware isn't in the same league as the other two.

With proprietary drivers, nVidia wins hands down for ease of use.

OpenCL (GPGPU) support using open source drivers is non-existent. One must use proprietary drivers. And for this, I prefer ATI.

I think there's little question that the nVidia proprietary drivers are good. I buy ATI rather than nVidia, even though I currently run proprietary drivers, because ATI supports open source while nVidia does not. nVidia is arguably more hostile toward open source than Microsoft.
