Yes, but maybe not, depends on the situation, it could be the other way around, and don't forget to reset the cmos.

Wacked all the way out.

No AMD does not suck. No Nvidia does not suck. No Nvidia is not better. No AMD is not better. Yes AMD does suck. Yes Nvidia does suck. Yes Nvidia is better. Yes AMD is better.They both offer good performance solutions at any given price point, and they both have there failures. Just stay away from the gtx570 and 590 of you want OC the cards, and dont buy a gtx 460 SE, that is a broken card from the factory.

"Some People" say lots of things, that is called an opinion. Look at benchmarks and reviews based of performance facts to make a decision, not "Some Peoples" opinion.

GTX 460 SE is not broken, it works and its cool when priced right, however as the naming of it is intended to confuse idiots into getting a weaker "Special Edition" gpu.

First of all what cards? Both aren't bad, and AMD tends to have better GPUs for less. U pay more for Nvidia and u get Physx and Cuda, but not a lot of games run PHysx.

Thanks I just wanted to know the difference!

Speaking purely from a linux pov, it used to be nvidia had better driver support. Not too long ago they dropped dep support, so now AMD cards work better and are easier to install. from an end-user standpoint, I'm all AMD - I just don't have the cash to support intel and nvidia.

Both manufacturers are great in general. Both have the odd model that might not be perfect, a bit pricey, running a little hot etc. I have just gone from Nvidia to AMD again, not because Nvidia are crap, but because I got a good deal on a better spec AMD.

Basically they are pretty much the same and if you like one over the other then you are called a fanboy. Not you like a card, but you are a fanboy and want to make sweet love to it. Sad but true,lol.

NV's card can support OpenGL and PhysX, I've worked with Unity3D and a lot of similar software program, those supports help me a lot.
