For me it was the other way around. All the nVidia cards I owned eventually died prematurely after a few years, probably due to overheating. My AMD from 2016 is still going strong. I think that coincided with a new proper case that has dust filters, but who can say. I was into video encoding for a while though and the good hardware-accelerated filters were only made for nVidia drivers, which was a bummer. I'm open for both, but only if my monitor's FreeSync is supported.
