I'm going to be building a new gaming PC soon and I mainly intend to play Skyrim when it comes out. However, I had a question, do the Elderscrolls games tend to favor one GPU maker over the other like so many games do?

i havent looked at the game requirements, but do they list one specific card and then say "or equivalent"?
for instance, shogun:2 says it is made for the 5/6000 series AMD or nvidia equivilent

as a general rule of thumb, nivida cards seem to perform slightly better at AA than AMD cards, but most cards have a twin on the other side. they like to make sure there is a card at a price point to beat the competitor.

Are you using 3 monitors or using other applications that take advantage of the CUDA processor on nVidia cards?
