No issues on the AMD card. System has been on since last Tuesday.
Nice, I am glad that you have seemed to solved your issues and can focus on gaming. That is basically what we all knew already as far as performance between the cards. It is amusing that some folks go to great lengths to make one card seem more powerful than another, especially using a measuring stick that isn't actual gaming. And it is all to essentially justify their purchase and show allegiance to a specific brand. Oh and I know it goes both ways and there are fan boys on both sides. It all boils down to performance in game, because that is what we buy these things for, yet we seem to fixate on secondary program performance much more.
Sure benchmarking can be amusing and informative, I am sure we all like to fine tune our cards and see if we can achieve a little higher score. But it just gets too competitive, and then people start basing cards performance solely on their Valley or 3D Mark score. I just always remember a post in the Valley thread in which a 7950 owner commented that he felt so much better about his choice after seeing GTX 770 results posted. That pretty much sums it up right there, whatever makes people feel better with their decisions.
