Well, Nvidia's Maxwell new architecture is slowly starting up. Soon, big guns will appear (GTX860-870-880...) and probably AMD will follow with new gen that will again beat nvidia on the price/performance ratio... Holding my sapphire hd6950 toxic 2gb (flashed 6970) until next genes. I was considering making the gap from AMD graphic to Nvidia ones.... should I and why (i need amd and nvidia fans answers !! :D  )
And you , would you like Nvidia or AMD next gen ?

Personally, I tend to sway more on the side of an Nvidia fan, but I recognize both companies for what they aim to do, and consider all relevant variables between the two.

If you look at the 780 Ti (Nvidia's response to AMD's R9 290X), it was basically about being a trivial few FPS better in games. If you want the best by 3-4 frames, then go with Nvidia.

Now consider the R9 290X. A capable card no matter who you're talking to. It's the flagship of the AMD GPU line, and it plays that role very well. But AMD's signature in the past has been the price/performance ratio. If you are looking for getting the most bang for your buck while buying a GPU, go the route of AMD.

However, the next gen of gaming will certainly be very powerful, and very exciting. The 750 Ti had AMAZING price/performance, and was incredibly efficient.

In short, it depends on what you want in your card. Both brands have fans that will tell you that their favorite company is the best, but each side has a part to play in the GPU and PC gaming market.

For price/performance, go with AMD.

For sheer chart-topping specs, and kicking the budget out of the window, Nvidia would be the way to go.

Hope I helped,

yeye i read all about new graphics , im gonna let go the R2xx series from amd and de gtx700 series from nvidia . Seems nvidia will lunch the 800 series in a near future, since the 750 ti is kind of a trial for they new Maxwell architecture. I pretty sure AMD will follow not a long time after (R3xx?). I would like argumentation about both world , i was slowly driving out of amd since a had many times troubles with there drivers, but seems many games makers trust theme ... and then AMd lunch this Mantle API the boost some games at a ridiculous point ... it is another marketing trick , in part probably , since new upcoming architecture will out stand everything ...
I will not search with a price ratio in mind ...
Just everytime a watch a game on a nvidia card , it always seems smoother than amd, not counting the driver issues,
Is nvidia have or had drivers issues too ?
Well anyway still have a little time to choose
thx for the advice ethan.

Most computer parts that you can buy have drivers, which means there can always be driver problems. Yes, Nvidia can have problems with drivers. As far as reliability in games, it depends. There are such things as Nvidia and AMD games.

Also, if my answer helped you, make sure to mark it as the solution.

If you're talking about "next generation", we're seeing AMD's next-gen in Hawaii right now. Don't expect anything new from them, aside from a product refresh (rebranding) at the end of 2014.

Meanwhile, the current Nvidia flagship cards are still based on two year old Kepler architecture. Maxwell is the next generation there, and won't be seen until they are good and ready to go. There's no need for them to rush given the current competitive landscape. We've gotten a little preview of what Maxwell can do in the GTX 750 Ti, and it's pretty astounding. Nvidia is pretty much an entire generation ahead of AMD in development. Their old technology is still better, faster, and more refined than the latest and greatest next-gen from AMD.
