Both GPUÂ´s consume way to much energy and just do not offer what should be expected by a product in such a price range.
In not even 3-4 months Nvidia Kepler and AMD 7000 series of cards will hit the market for persumeably the same price if not less ,twice or even triple the performance and less than half the power consumption in two words just more efficient.
Buying either one of those old gen underprivileged cards would be completely redundant and uncalled for.
All this hype and PR is caused by Nvidia and AMD to seduce the shallow minds in buying one of their overpriced old series **** cards which have only one good thing about them ...advertisement.
So be patient and wait until the new generation of GPUs arrive.
I knew it all along I started this thread to determine what they are gonna cost.
But that buying one of them was out of the question was never a point of consideration for me.
Confirmation of the release of kepler and AMD 7000 is unnecassary because the information about the fact that kepler will be released in 4 - 3 Quartal has already been published by Nvidia.Just take a look at the Nvidia Roadmap.
I am not sure about AMD 7000 but Kepler will be 3 times as efficient in performance/power consumption ratio ...and definetly outperform Fermi for much less of a price.
My Quote is the absolute truth.
