i want to ask that nvidia is working with microsoft on the direct x12 and amd is working on it's own api mantle. so which graphics card brand if more future proof. I'm asking this because i want to buy a new graphics card and i have a choice between the gtx 760 and r9 280
Technology advances at a fast rate. There is no such thing as future proofing. The GTX 760 and R9 280 is pretty much on the same level. In the end it's about personal preference. Personally, I'd grab the GTX 760.
