This is annoying as i just chose a GeForce G210 over a Radeon HD 5450, mainly due to my money restraints but i can always upgrade right

The growth in ATI card sales is more about their drivers being more compatible with older games. I have seen so many threads (like for the original Shogun and Medieval Total War) where running the game seems to be a problem if you have an NVidia but not if you have an ATI!

Due to my money restraints, I've never played on PCs and have never upgraded graphics cards:)

nvidia's 5xx series is likely delayed a decent bit because of the long delay of 4xx series. This isn't going to be good for prices if ati keeps gaining ground. I've almost always preferred ati to nvidia as they've usually had a better price/performance when I went to buy cards but if ati gains too much ground they'll likely switch spots so they can milk the market like nvidia has.

I used to be an ATI owner, and all I can say is ATI is like the pharmaceutical industry, they release a driver set that fixes the problems in one game(one disease) but causes 20 other problems in other games(causes diareahea, nausea, migraines, blood in stools, hemrhoids, acid reflux, urinary tract infections, and even death).

They might have better bang for your buck, but they are very unstable, cause BSODs, and just not worth the headache. With nvidia you can install their betas and never have problems. I have yet to see a BSOD or a glitch in any game that makes it unplayable.

These statistics hardly seem to be an accurate measure of the actual video cards being used by PC owners at the present time, but its nice to see ATI taking apparently taking a chunk of the market, they sure deserve a reward for the 5 series
