Ok, I'm returning my Asus HD7770 to Microcenter tonight, after experiencing BSOD with several of the old and new drivers and tried many things. I think I might choose Nvidia, but I'm not a hard core gamer, played COD on this card, worked for the time being well enough for me, but which card should I go with in the $160-$200 range?
The exact card I have, and even though it's a factory OC model to begin with, I have mine OC'd to 950/1900/2100 @ 1.062V and max temps in games are in the low 60's (with a custom fan profile; ie. 50% @ 50C, 60% @ 60C and so on. I have it set so the fans don't really ramp up until 40% @ 45C too, though. Before 40C, it's set to <20%).
