Reference AMD cards are usually slightly louder and cooler than nvidia cards, at least that is what I've seen. The coolers aren't bad, Nvidia's driver team is just more comfortable with higher temps than AMD's, I guess.
Easily fixed with MSI afterburner + custom fan profile.5870vsGTX4706970vsGTX5707970vsGTX670
I've been hearing about "horrible drivers" for years. I've only ever had one problem I couldn't fix with ATI's drivers, but that was several years ago with a 3870 and was likely vista's fault anyway. I guess I am just more tolerant of little quirks than others, since I'd say AMD's drivers are perfectly adequate. I don't have a 7xxx series card yet, so I can't speak on those, just on the cards I've actually had personal experience with(9800, 3870, 4830, 5750). It might help that I always buy cards that are at least 6 months old.Edited by qwertymac93 - 5/12/12 at 5:00pm
