I've bought radeon 7970, 7950, and 5870, 4850 crossfire, as well as 4870 single... I'm no fanboy either. I've given them AMD a shot constantly over the past several generations and always end up with nVidia solutions because they just plain work and generally (in most generations) are faster. *shrug* Regardless, the Radeon 7970 Lightning which may be able to beat the gtx 680 finally in performance, still is $100+ more costly... and requires more complex oc'ing to do so. I just don't see the point, personally.
Here was my original Radeon 7970:
... and my GTX 680's.
It's not about fanboyism, it's about which product is faster, works well, and is cheaper, quieter, etc. as well as consumes less power (for those that care about that last point, I don't). In these regards, the gtx 680 being $50 cheaper than a reference radeon 7970 is a clear winner to anyone objectively looking at their choices for video cards at this moment of time, exceptional circumstances such as 7680x1600 tri-30" monitors excluded.Edited by GoldenTiger - 3/29/12 at 12:14pm
