Closed Radeon vs Nvidia Help? Tags: Graphics Cards Radeon Graphics Product Last response: July 21, 2011 9:39 PM in Graphics & Displays Share MikeW96 July 7, 2011 3:00:01 AM So i was hoping to purchase a Radeon graphics card the other day and i asked my brother what he thought about it. Hes more oriented in hardware from 2005 ish, and less recently so i assume his information might be skewed. He said that i shouldnt get a Radeon graphics card for gaming because many games arent compatible with them . Im thinking its B.S but im not sure. If so, on the current market which of these is better for Price to Performance and compatibility(if there is any) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or the radeon http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I can tell that the radeon is better just by looking at the specs but all i really need now is to run Source engine games and TF2 well. Thanks!
