What are the pros/cons and can you tell me the difference between these two companies? Then can you tell me which manufacturer to buy for amd or nvidia?
Also which you prefer and why?

It's all depends on MANY aspects, you can't just say that NVIDIA is better than AMD or vise versa... :)

at midrange,the amd cards are best bang for the buck but if you have enough money to spend on high end graphic cards then surely nvidia will lead .

is 350$ only for the graphic card then your best bet would be
gtx 670 - 370$

hd 7950 - 330$

gtx 660 ti - 310$

i would recommend a gtx 670 if u can afford otherwise a hd 7950 will be a very good choice

Get the 7950 with a good cooler and over clock it

Unfortunatly no, AMD indeed had the best bang for the buck but when you want to spend more money the Nvidia for the same price will not perform any better than an AMD. Nvidia had CUDA cores wicvh make these cards 100000 times more expensive thats why AMD in almost all cases performce way better for the money. But when it comes to video editing and rendering the CUDA cores come in handy and your Nvidia will render everything way faster. AMD however has tremendous Open CL performance and more and more applications are making use of Open CL these days like Photoshop. so in the future i think all applications will use Open CL. Nvidia is a good performer especially when your also editing videos and such. AMD cards has incredible gaming performance for the price you pay for them, but as i said with more Open CL comming our way i dont think Nvidia leads in anyway at THIS moment :)
