Which programs are you using to edit videos? It depends on it which cards will be the best for you.

Sony Vegas 8.0

Which card has the best perfomance for that Budget , AMD or Nvidia?

AMD cards have more VRAM eg. 7970 MATRIX Platinum Asus 3 GB


I want a card which will be able to take all games coming next year with Ultra Settings or atleast High.

thats euro's right? that would be $727.26 USD. for that price you could probably crossfire 7970's.

He can't. Prices in europe in euros are the same as in USA in dollars. For example, in europe, GTX 670 costs ~380 euros.

Anyway, I'd go with HD 7970 GHz edition: sony vegas is known to have problems with kepler GPUs.

Everything costs more in Europe. It's called VAT.

What do you think about the Asus HD 7970 Matrix Platinum? I this card prepared for the next 1-2 years? Better perfomance in Games?

It's a VERY nice card. It is probably the best card you can get.

But if you're gonna use Sony Vegas 8.0 the amd cards are indeed better ones (7xxx series) the 600 series have troubles with that software, that said, it depends on your preferences, both are really good, the 7970 Asus matrix and the 680 gtx Asus DCII TOP.

Not only Vegas. Its primary a gaming machine, but the fps @7970 are better in most games than 680. Dunno why the Asus Gtx 680 Top got a better score than the Matrix Platinum.

The review of the 680 gtx Asus was before the 7970 ghz editions came out.
Hence the better score, but the 680 gtx is also a good card, even with less fps in the chart.
But for your need the 7970 Asus matrix is the best.
