    nvidia's drivers beat amd's drivers any day.
    for the rest of my life i am a loyal evga nvidia customer.
    all others suck so badly they mind as well just close shop.
    amd = absolutely miserable design
    7970 might beat 680gtx in certain benchmarks, but it looks so stuttery compared to nvidia. looks like they're designed by retarded monkeys with degrees in bananology.
    the only good thing about amd is they keep nvidia prices lower.
    in fact, rumor has it that it's just nvidia competing with themselves...
