Difference between an nvidia card and a radeon/other AMD gpus?

So I am a first time computer builder (hail the pc race!) and I was wondering how come gpus like the nvidia ones are so pricey compared to other high end cards like the r9 series even though they only have 2 gb and 256 bit.

    nvidia asks for a price premium on the best of the best. they have mid level cards as well. it's an all out war between them. it has been going on for years.
  2. Right now it's not so pricey bro. They dropped the price on the gtx 780 and 770 to match the r9 290x and r9 280x. Though AMD still wins the price/performance ratio. To each they have their own pros. Either way, I doubt you'll regret going with any brand. AS LONG AS YOU KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND DON'T FALL FOR THE TYPICAL FANBOYS. :)

    Thanks for the advice, but could you also tell me how the nvidia would keep up?

    AMD's cards are highly overclocked when they go on sale. Whereas Nvidia's cards are not OCed much. You can see the benchmarks between 780, 770, r9 290x, 290, and r9 280x, they're performing closely to the competition but the AMD cards are cheaper. But Linus techtips also showed that when you OC to the wall the nvidia cards, it easily beats the amd cards. So that's how nvidia would keep up with AMD. I hope that answers your question. :)

    Thanks
  6. sure
  7. In terms of typical stability, which are better?
  8. I see a lot of people say that the drivers of AMD has some issues. I don't have any experience with these problems though. And those problems arise when using xfire, I believe SLI also has some issues. But AMD is infamous for their drivers....
