dont remember to be honest that was many years ago back with amd 64 cpu..lol... but man that thing sucked.. I havnt built anything in 6 years since that though so obviously i wouldnt know... but either way its obvious that nvidia owns amd all day and has been for a long time...you see tons of amd rigs for sale on craigslist and they do not hold any value or interest.

6 years ago. That was 2007 which is HD2900 or HD3870. They were really bad. That's not the case now. You might want to give them another chance. HD4000 and later have been solid competitors to NVIDIA cards.

I'd say they both suffer from various bugs in different places. The only disadvantage of AMD cards is that they don't support PhysX and CUDA. Unless they're critical to you, there is no reason to not consider AMD.

Crossfire vs SLI is another thing. In some games Crossfire scales better and vise versa. I am not even sure now which is better.

I'd say you're ignorant of performance, you even admit it as well. Personally I'm not an AMD fan, I just go for whatever is the best price/performance.

Had a 955 + 5850
955 + 560 Ti 448
3570 + 560 Ti 448
3570 + 7970

You know you're committing some logical fallacy somewhere in here about "amd rigs are terrible on sale"
