As for CF - SLI, scaling is similar, microstuttering is a lot worse with AMD, but they're fixing it.

yup.....

Yeah good news. Lower the prices more. (Now if we had a 3rd GPU company of the size of AMD prices would get even cheaper)

If you don't know anyone who plays F2P games then you probably don't know any real gamers. The F2P market is much bigger and better than it used to be, it's not all asian P2win MMOs. Nowadays you have Planetside 2, Tribes ascend, World of Tanks, Hawken, LoL, Dota 2, HoN, Gotham city impostors, TF2 + pretty much all MMOs etc.

TF2 having more players playing than BF3 ought to tell you something about the playerbase behind free to play games. Or how about Dota 2 having 7 times as much players playing as BF3. Or how about LoL having over 12 million daily players.

Nope, no one plays F2P games and they're all crap.
"Real gamers". Right. Because Angry Birds has all the hardcore folks.

BTW, to anyone in this thread saying that AMD's lower end cards have better price/perf than NV's. Go check out the reviews for the 650Ti Boost.

You just quoted a post that detailed how the "hardcore" F2P games have more players than even the most popular normal AAA titles and your reply is about angry birds?

Free to play. You don't have to buy the game but they usually include microtransactions for cosmetic stuff etc.

And as of now it's the best price/performance card on the market. Beats the 7850 at a lower price point and clearly beats the 7790.

Well yes those too but when it comes to the stuff we discuss on OCN more like almost all modern MMOs, Team fortress 2, Planetside 2, Hawken, World of Tanks, League of Legends and so on...
