Don't agree with playing games on consoles but this video regarding the GTX 680 is very very funny. Enjoy!

First time i've never heard of this... I seemed to experience the exact opposite when I went back to NVIDIA. I never have to go above 4x MSAA even at 1080p, there's really next to no difference unless you sit there staring at edges instead of playing the game.

Close tests, and of course, no surprise to see a lot more Nvidia fans out there than AMD considering it does have a larger market share. Overall, with how close the two companies run these days, I think it comes down to personal preference.
post #54 of 679
I think either choice is fine. They're so close it doesn't really matter which you choose, since either will be a good investment for different, but equally important reasons.

Which one would be better for gaming with 3 1080 monitors? Also does the 680 have screen tearing like amd with the mixed inputs? I was thinking of getting the 7970 lightning Im so sure anymore. Thanks for any input.

Given that the GTX 680 can now do Surround off one card, AMD no longer holds that advantage.

But I really think the "King" isn't an appropriate term, because no one card is better then the other 100% of the time.

We should give each card "Co-Manager" status. Because they both kick the teeth out of games.

You can't really call the 680 "The King", since the 7970 performs right on par with it....and the 7970 has been out for 2 months already. rolleyes.gif

It's quite obvious that nVidia wins here. More powerful core, operates more efficiently on less power, numerous anti-aliasing innovations and improvements, added 3+1 nVidia Surround (with nVidia surround 3D support). It takes away the one edge AMD used to claim they had, eyefinity, which as far as I'm concerned could only utilize 3D with their sketchy 3D software and a 3D enabled tv with it's own proprietary glasses.
nVidia wins again with it's "mid-range" chip. AMD, well they dissapoint again (NOT surprising)

They are both Awesome cards. The green team does hold it down on the price though. Here's to hopin AMD drops their prices. 400-450 would definitely get me to get another.

It's kind of funny listening to all the rants. In the end green will be on the green side and reds will be with the reds.
