But I don't really see any argument as I basically said all the same things you did about the HD 7970.
As far as only gaming... the GTX 600 series is only a Gaming card. It was intentionaly designed without Compute ability.

This is exactly why I'm trying to avoid it (as well as it being apparently worse than AMD's current offerings at even gaming itself... LOL!).



How well does Physx work with an AMD card in the primary slot (obviously using a secondary nvidia card)? Is it still a PITA to get it all set up? Does it universally work or does it need to be hacked in on a per-game / per driver update basis? As far as gaming goes, this is my ONLY reason to even consider Nvidia.


Outside of gaming, the extra CUDA horsepower (hamstrung as it may be) would still be nice. Not worth the cost for this reason alone though.
