Then, I got wind of how inexpensive ATI/AMD cards had become. I went on NewEgg & sure enough saw I could get an HD7970 cheaper than a GTX 670.
That got me thinking.
After I had looked through my issue of Maximum PC & saw there was a link to an online revised article & new beta drivers that made the HD 7000 series really take off & run BF3,Crysis & the like much much better.I was sold......
I thought wow, I guess I will just have to go with an HD7970.
I'll give the boys in red another try.
Now that I see 139 pages dedicated to the continued ups & downs of ATI/AMD drivers.This really makes me think twice about going back to a Radeon.
Just wanted to say, that from a perspective buyers point of view. This gives me caution.
It seems drivers have been & continue to be the achilles heel of ATI/AMD.
Sad too, I've run many many ATI cards over the years.And, I've always rooted for them.
I'd love to buy a HD7970.I'm just afraid of what's going to happen after the drivers are installed.
