ATI or Nvidia? - Page 5

post #41 of 51
This thread is filled with ATI and Nvidia fan boys and all your comments of shreds, rapes and old reviews mean absolutely nothing.

If the OP learned anything on this thread is that the AMD vs Nvidia vice versa debate is a bitter blind sided argument and that he truley didn't learn anything from it.

Choosing between AMD or Nvidia is like trying to choose which red or green apple in a barrel taste better when they both taste just as good.

I had a feeling when I saw this noob post he'd get all the fan boys out of the wood work and most of you fell into it hook line and sinker.

Disagree. AMD/ATI have the best bang for your buck video cards right now pretty much across the board. I personally can report zero driver issues over the last few years in the games that I play, and that's with a 4890, 4890 crossfire, and now a 6970.

This is an objective opinion, I did not just set out to purchase from one company exclusively. If I wanted the fastest single gpu, I'd get a 580. Like has been said in numerous posts, Nvidia has its advantages too, but gaming price/performance is not one of them. There have been many constructive posts here.

Personally I would be going for the 6950 1gb, the unlock of the 2gb model is not as earth shattering as many like to make out (literally 1-2%, and it doesn't scale), so a 1gb offers better value for money than a 2gb, you won't be needing that 2gb of vram.

Didn't say everyone btw. I also agree you can disagree so we can agree to disagree. Both companies make great cards is true. For you to say one doesn't truly means your biased and or don't know much. I had issues with ATI drivers for many years running till I jumped ship. Does it mean they suck? No it doesn't. Nvidia has it's fair share of issues too. Neither side is perfect and to suggest otherwise just hints to being a fan boy.

Each person has different needs of why they are choosing a card. Some want price per performance, others want pure performance regardless of price. Some have mother board or power supply limitations etc. Depends on if you want to SLI or Crossfire and your PSU. Depends on if you want 3D gaming and movies or not. Depends on if your running multiple monitors or single. Both sides have their strengths and weaknesses. Not everyone made constructive criticisms therefor fan boy thread war, I was accurate.

No he was stating how Foolsmasher walked into it. eggs2see's comment was kind of funny actually.

Well off to work I go, I'm sure I'll get the usual response from these types of threads but won't be commenting back on this one because it's not going anywhere except down. Good luck to the OP, I'm sure he's more confused on his question than before, with false accusations being made by the boys.

Check out the benches and comparison, you can also compare different cards from the pull down if you like. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/331?vs=330

Alot of this is just personal preference. I use to use ATI until the 7600GT and I jumped ship because of ATI problems with drivers. I was a Nvidia user all the way until my GTX260 and I swapped back to ATI because I always was having some kinda BSOD with the words NV in it. This happened with my 8800GTS 512, 9800GTX aswell so I know it wasnt a bad card. Since I have been running HD 5830 and CF aI have had no driver or Catalyst problems.
This is how the two have been for me. So with that said I would go with the 6950 because if I was gonna upgrade today thats what I would get.

2gb 6950 or 560 Ti. This is entirely preference based in my opinion, and it's hard to discern between the two unless you've used both Nvidia and ATi cards. I've used both and personally, I like Nvidia better, but that's completely irrelevant.

For $250, your choices should be between something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-565-_-Product

And something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-928-_-Product

Both of those cards will perform very well. If you want, look up reviews for both of them and decide on your own accord which one you want. Nvidia and ATi will continue to trade off blows, but what always comes of this is a level playing field. At certain points, one company is more efficient and able to produce the best performing card. At mid-range, however, there's often a very close game, and this choice comes down almost entirely to personal preference. Just read up on those two cards and choose for yourself.
