youre missing the point. nvidia still takes the cake on power consumption, and overclocking. plus if your looking at nvidia and not AMD theres a reason. 3d, physx, ease of use, or even the final word on benchmarks(3dmark11)

ive weighed the options time and time again. you just dont get as much with AMD

Must mean the demand for 680s and 670s is very high in the UK frown.gif

You just need to find a friend in the US who is willing to ship to the UK smile.gif

Or to cross the Channel and grab one in Calais for a decent price?

ive weighed the options time and time again. AMD just dosnt have what nvidia does

- AMD does have 3D.
- nVidia cards ain't any easier than AMD as far as plugging em in and installing drivers
- Wattage, there you got a valid point. 307W in full stress for the 680, 355 for the 7970 GHz Edition. Woopie freakin doo. Personally where I live it would mean me saving 40 euros a year in electricity bills (assuming the computer's on 24/7) so by buying a 7970 and paying more on my bills, I actually save money the first 2 years and a half compared to the price of a 680? Definitely will have bought a newer card by then.
- PhysX. PhysX is a proprietary software which, guess what, is inferior in most ways to the engines 99% of games use for their physics (Havok comes to mind). So yeah unless you're playing Batman, Mirror Edge or any other of the what, 20 games that really thrive with PhysX, it's pretty much useless. Plus, you can always buy an older nVidia card for 50€ and use it to get PhysX if you really can't live without it.
- Overclocking. Errr nope, AMD cards are just as easily oc'ed as nVidia's. Both can easily be clocked 20 to 25% faster as far as the cores are concerned, so I don't see what you base your assumption on.


Bottom line, every single one of your points is either void or highly subject to debate. Now I could link to some websites/reviews/benchs/spreadsheets to confirm mine, but I'll let you google that, coz I'm fairly sure it could help you learn a thing or two about gfx cards.
Keep in mind before posting that if you don't wanna be pointed out as a fanboy (which your post clearly marks you as), get your facts straight and always have sources to back em up if need be.

I just don't consider AMD anymore because of all the driver issues I've had and the early ATI crap they sold. Hey, ingrained experiences are hard to erase:D

yes AMD does have 3d, but how many monitors actually support it, hmmm? your looking at $200 additional at my screen size just because its HD3D and not a 3d monitor with 3d support. and even then, most of the "popular" monitors in that category for AMD are discontinued, so, NO, its not as simple as that.

regardless of your preference on physx, it is a feature, and maybe not the most common feature in gaming today, it is utilized by many games that are used as primary benchmarking utilities for this subject matter. and if you want it. you can either go nvidia, or use an additonal PCIE slot for an nvidia card, so nvidia is what you need to utilize it.

OC based on Core clock/mem clock? look at the lightnings. or the SOCs. even if you have to compare the classy to the toxic. nvidia takes the cake.

and for the record its hard to point at someone and say "your a fanboy" when i own 2 flagship cards from either side of the table.

Still too expensive. I will have a HD7970 over it any day with these prices. It's rediculous.

Nvidias drivers are no easy ride either, we GTX 580 users have not been able to play AC3 or FC3 for 2 months now, without downgrading or overvolting.......

No worries pal, I feel that.

Cheapest GTX680 in Spain is 435€, equivalent to 580$ as well... And the most expensive 680 is the EVGA Classy, at €625, or $830.


It's sad that the UK/mainland Europe gets ripped off so hardcore. And we're on the cheap side, as Eastern europe is even MORE expensive.

Sorry, but no. AMD overclocks higher and easier. It eats more power, but at the benefit of a several times fold computing performance (yes, the board is not absolutely useless for anything besides gaming, and because of it it's more future proof as well).
3D, I give it to you here, if what you're playing supports it. AMD's variant doesn't come close. But PhysX? Who the hell uses PhysX rolleyes.gif
Benchmarks? Don't tell me you spend your days watching at 3DMark11... tongue.gif

Not with cards in Crossfire the last time i checked. Plus 3D Vision is far superior.
