Now I'm wondering whether or not it's worth buying the 560 ti right now. Is there a similar performance and quality one made by AMD. I might go with that and just upgrade when the ti's price drop. Are amd and nvidia cards interchangeable?? _Spectre June 20, 2011 9:13:03 AM Does anyone see anywhere i can save a little money without sacrificing performance? _Spectre June 20, 2011 9:23:43 AM Ok thanks for the help. Are the amd gpu's good, because everyone I've talked to seems to think the current nvidia technology is far superior. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
