How would you know since you don't own Nvidia cards? I've owned both and since switching I've not had ANY driver problems. I mean not one. Don't spread biased false info, it dosen't serve OCN members well.

So hard to decide...I just want to buy a card that I can keep for the next year solid.

I know all the benchmarks but i guess you just need people to convince you while you convince yourself
Sounds like you didn't need to post this thread as you've already made up your mind.

Also your 580 is already handling games maxed and will for the next year so I guess I'm confused. Both AMD and Nvidia 28nm cards are due out about end of Q1 2012, you have more than enough juice under the rig to keep things maxed until then.

I think you already convinced yourself - you just didn't know it. Good luck.

Bad hair day? Relax, please.

I have 25 computers in my 2 business, with alot of Nvidia cards, and also 2 high-end ''gaming'' laptops with Nvidia cards.

So I have around 15 high-end PCs with AMD cards, and around 10 with Nvidia cards.

I have MUCH more experience then you with both manufacturers, and since the first day Nvidia made their first GPU. Got my 1st computer in 1983. smile.gif

And lately, my technicians at work are having more problems with the latest Nvidia drivers then AMD.

Ok cheers for all the opinions boys

Think I will just stick with the single 580 until the 7xxx series hits and I can see what my options are

Take it easy
