I could care less about price/performance. The higher you go toward the top, the more the returns diminish.

I look at what my options are as to what's available and decide from there.

I purchased Titan over a week after everyone did their reviews and knew exactly what I was getting.

I could have bought 7990, 690 or another 7970 etc but I didn't.

Titan was what I felt was right for me. Others may or not feel the same way, that's why we're allowed to buy whatever we want.

Yeah, that's definitely a benefit. I trust them over any other AIB. Their motherboards are crap, though.

AMD/Nvidia exist to simply take our money. AMD at this point just isn't as good as Nvidia is at doing it.

The more market share AMD gains, the more expensive their next generation will be.

Why do you find it so comical when its true?
"All you kept hearing ," is the case because Nvidia is better at taking money at a lesser performance/price ratio than Amd.

Do you really think for even a second that if AMD could have kept their launch prices that they would not have?

That they somehow have feelings for us enthusiasts and drop prices so more of us could play?

Keep dreaming.

I guess he doesn't understand the benefits of competition. Or maybe he just doesn't remember the initial $550 asking price for the 7970.

AMD, for the best price/performance. and uhh, for calculations that nvdia cards arn't so good at. *wink wink*wink.gif

Edit: ehh, looks like somebody already brought this up, so i might as well staighten it out, they are far better than nvidia at hash calculations for mining.

I'm going to go with ATI/AMD. Their price to performance seems to be far above that of nVidia. Their drivers seem to be catching up at a decent pace, and are pretty decent now. Eyefinity is still a better solution and nVidia Vision Surround, although Vision 3d is the best 3d technology. The only advantages I would give nVidia at the moment are still slightly better drivers and PhysX which add a little something extra to a lot of games. I can safely say that If I were to upgrade now it would certainly be AMD, and that would be my first AMD/ATI card since the X1900 XT days.
Slowly upgrading.

nVidia because the drivers are so much better, ATI drivers for some cards don't let you set up custom resolutions and you have to get external software to match your native screen resolution of your monitor. nvidia already supports many resolutions and lets you make custom ones.thumb.gif
