Also, my processor is "AMD" and I was told to stay away from Nvidia because I use AMD? Is this true because I was really interested in this gpu. :cry:

The cooler is the only difference. The Core Clock is at 850MHz on both cards so there should not be much of a performance difference if any.

However I would recommend this card instead as it has a non-reference cooler and should have much better thermals and is very quiet.

To answer your other question....No, your AMD CPU will not be a factor. There is really no advantage to having an AMD CPU and GPU. There are zero compatibility issues.

Where can I find the difference in coolers?
Trying to look for it and can't find it anywhere.

Just an older stock and newer stock difference on those two cards I believe. One is on offer, the other is not.

If you are considering the 190$ card , I would recommend this instead. Sapphire 6950. It's on a good deal at Newegg for 190$ after rebate and comes with coupons for BF3 and Dirt 3 as well. -

But there is no difference if you use a NVIDIA or AMD card irrespective of your CPU. There is no compatibility issues as such.

No difference whatsoever. Go with the first one since it's cheaper.

Okay, thanks guys!

Now, would it be better to go with the ASUS one or EVGA?

Just go with the EVGA. The 40$ price difference on the ASUS is definitely not worth it.
