Hi i have a AMD Radeon 7970 in my desktop and than in my older PC i have a GTX 680 can i equip my 680 on the same desktop that my 7970 is in? Can i equip 7970 and 680 at the same time on one monitor? And will it have a FPS difference?
Thank you!!!

Should you go for either for what? You have a 7970 and a 680. Either one will provide adequate performance on a single 1920x1080 monitor. If you don't find that information useful, I'm sorry, because I had to guess at what information might be relevant.

Who made the chip on the card is one of many factors. The company that made the card. The cooler on the card. The quality of the power management, warranty, and price matter. The buyer's expectations for performance, how many monitors, and resolution all matter. AMD has excellent pricing. Nvidia has excellent driver support. There's pros and cons. It depends on what matters to the person buying the card.

1 monitor at 1920x1080
Made by asus or msi
2gb to 4gb
Nvidia gtx 700 series or amd radeon 7000 series which one AMD or nvidia and which product my budget is anything lower than 450 dollars

I would go with the AMD R9 290, it has close performance with the Nvidia GTX 780 and it is $300 cheaper. Here is the link http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

No you cant use an amd card with an nvidia card and why upgrade a 7970 will play everything at max on a 1920x1080p resolution

It's fun! =)

I'd go with the R9 290 like was already said, but not until they have decent coolers on them. As far as nvidia goes, since you already have a 680, and the 770 is essentially the same, that only leaves the 780, 780Ti, and Titan, which are all out of the price range. Since you already have a 7970, and the R9 280 is the same, that leaves the R9 290 and R9 290X. 1920x1080 is still a demanding resolution, and there are games that at maxed settings will not run consistently at or above 60 fps, so no card is really total overkill. To further narrow down the field, however, we could talk about what types of games you play.

Well, I'd probably miss physx. It does add some pretty nice eye candy to a number of games, but is non essential to gameplay.

Nvidia doesn't necessary have the best drivers (not trying to troll nor make a polemic but I have a GTX 660 and lately some drivers issues but I admit it's the first time). I mean AMD make very good drivers. Definitely go for a 290x if you can but wait for new coolers. Either ways Nvidia or AMD make very good chipsets, I'll tell you to choose for whatever cooler brand if the noise don't bother you then just choose the cheapest.

Yeah I hear you. There's always exceptions, but that's what generalizing does. It forgives those. ;)  He's set a budget of $450, so for now, unfortunately, the 290X is out of his price range.

Actually he stated that he just used those for example, he doesn't have them yet. So it's fair game as far as the high end cards go

It is. It runs on pci-e while your motherboard does too, so it's good to go. It is also usually better to shop online, as you get lower prices and they do now screw you over as often.

If you know the PSU you have, you can look it up, if you don't it should have a sticker. It is safe to say if it came with the computer it isn't good enough.
