NVIDIA or ATI for 1090T?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have an AMD PC with a 1090T CPU and a EAH5870 from ASUS.

I want to upgrade my graphic card and was wondering if i should go for a GTX580 or a 5970?

Does having and AMD cpu make any difference? Will i get more performance sticking with an ATI card?

Doesn't matter - both are beastly cards, 580 is the fastest single card, and beats the 5970 in certain games, is much better with tessellation, and if a game only supports a single GPU will do much better. I like my 580's but go with which ever is cheaper, both will offer great performance.

Having an AMD cpu vs an Intel one makes no difference here?

The only difference it makes, is that you won't be able to SLI with an Nvidia card due to the AMD chipset. There is ofcourse a hack around that may or may not work for you.

Personally, I would go with an AMD card to leave the option of a dual gpu setup open. Another 5870 would net a nice gain in performance, while the 6950 2GB is also a nice performer and can be unlocked to a 6970 in many cases.

I would rather buy a second 5870. It's the cheapest option and will give you the best performance for the price.

I could get a 5970 and keep my current 5870 too for a trifire setup. that would be a better idea... i didn't know my AMD cpu wouldn't allow me to SLI an Nvidia card.

Not really mate, after 2 cards, gains become minimal due to poor scaling. You'd just be wasting money honestly. Best go here is another 5870 IMO.

Also, you learn something new everyday It's not the CPU that limits it, it's the fact that Nvidia wouldn't give AMD a lisence to support SLI in the 800 series chipset.
