PARTS PREFERENCES: This is where i'm stumped. I have no clue if i want nVidia or AMD. Do I have to have nVidia because my CPU is intel? I dont know if I should buy a cheaper card now and then buy a newer series card when they come out? Or just buy the best I can get now? I know It's either between the GTX 560/570/580 but I dont know which RADEON cards are good. Are RADEON cards better for FPS games? Any specific cards that are known to be better than the GTX'S?
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe, but only when I get a new mobo cause mine is MicroATX.
from nVidia i know I either want the GTX 570 or 580. idk if i should just get a 560 then wait until the new series comes and but one of them. And from RADEON I dont know, but they look cheaper for better specs then nVidia from what I've seen. Any specific cards that stand out, performance wise, with fps games?
