Currently AMD is best for a majority of the projects out there.

That depens on what kind of money you can spend?

AMD
HD 7990

Hd 6990

HD 7950. HD 7970GE gives little gain for the money but that would be the best.

HD 7870XT if you can find it for sub $230.

Keep in mind Milkyway@Home uses double precision, so GK104 & GK106 Kepler (GTX 690/GTX 680/GTX 670/GTX 660 Ti/GTX 660/GTX 650 Ti Boost/GTX 650 Ti/GTX 650) is no good for that.

If you want speed and have money to blow a GTX 680 SLI setup is 15-40% faster then a GTX Titan and a 7950/7970 would be faster still

But you really sould buy a 1440P monitor if you are going with a Titan or two video cards

For BOINC, AMD cards reign supreme, and monitor doesnt matter tongue.gif Unless you were to game on it.
