    Your arguments are moot to me since I refuse to use ATI/AMD GPUs. I've tried them many times over the years including last year and have always found their drivers buggy. Now, someone will be along shortly to say that Nvidia has it's share of driver issues and they are correct. All software has bugs, however with ATI/AMD bugs are the rule rather than the exception, IMHO.
  2. Hi,

    1 gb is just a marketing scheme, you won't have any real benefits from it, but maybe later. (then again maybe new tech will get out and make it useless anyway)

    In that case it would be a question of taste.

    I agree with you that ati/amd have buggy drivers and that's why I stay away from them.

    but still the amd/ati would perform better
  3. the amd series have more noise and heating problems for my taste,

    Im looking at getting

    Intel i7 2700k
    Nvidia GTX590 4gb
    16Gb Corsair ddr3 ram
    Gigabyte p68a-ud7

    What is your verdict?
