AMD vs. Nvidia

Nvidia, because errbody supports it more than AMD in games now-a-days in my experience :) Unless you count TRESS-FX ULTRA SILKY HAIR SHAMPO- I mean AMD's new old gimmick

CATS. That's about it honestly...

Nvidia. Better driver support.

I've had a good experience with both brands. I have an Nvidia right now, because I wanted the option to SLI down the road, and currently Crossfire has some stuttering issues that need to be worked out. 2 years from now, who knows? I might have 2 of the same card I have now, or a new nvidia card, or a new ATI card. Depends on the price/performance/options.

Nvidia. AMD makes good cards for a budget, but I'm willing to pay a bit more to avoid the many small nuisances that come with AMD cards.

Never had issues with nvidia cards.
#28DV8ingSourcesPosted 9/11/2013 10:02:31 AM
Nvidia just seems to know how their hardware works better than AMD does. It took ages for AMD to smarten up and the trust just isn't there for me right now.

I prefer whatever is the best performance for the dollar at the time. That happens to be AMD most of the time, but I'm not a fanboy, so if Nvidia is ever that card when I'm looking to buy, I'll buy it.

I tend to get what's most value at my money for the time, and that's usually AMD.

Nvidia does have longer driver support though, which I really see as a major boon. Their DX9 cards even have official Windows 8 support. Nvidia also often has better working drivers for OpenGL
