I want to make a good computer for video games and video editing. I looked at a build that someone made with 8 gigs of memory, Intel i7 3770k, and 2 Radeon 7970 cards. Would it be better to get an Nvidia card? If so, which card? I heard the 690 was really good. I don't know which is better.
The 690 will perform better, but it also costs upwards of $1000. Actually, they kind of trade blows, but even though the 690 is two cards in one, I don't think you get the stuttering you'd get from a normal crossfire or SLI setup.
