Should I switch to Nvidia?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I custom built my new PC for the first time in awhile, I dropped about a grand and a half into it. I spent almost 400 dollars on my Sapphire 7970 3gb dual-x OC. I RMA'd it once for artifacting, got it back, had the same issue, RMA'd again.

I now know that the dx9 flickering/artifacting is a bug but still experience issue in dx10/11 games depending on the drivers i'm using.

I'm currently using the latest beta now as they give me the best performance but as I said, still give me issues (and of course the dx9 ones especially)


I have the ability to refund, lose some money and switch over to Nvidia 670 or 680. In your guys honest opinion is this a good idea? Or should I wait it out. As a long time ATI fan It's sad to say I'm considering this, but it really sucks dropping so much money on a product that just doesn't live up to expectations. Thanks for your time.

Grab an EVGA 670 or 680. You won't regret it. biggrin.gif

I've had an EVGA card a while now and you really can't beat their customer service and their card's performance. I'm not against AMD, i just prefer Nvidia. smile.gif

Nvidia drivers are typically a lil more mature so if you don't want to wait around for AMD, go for it. AMD will eventually catch up, they always do but eh we don't always have the luxury of waiting around for that.
