This board generally recommends Nvidia/Intel rather than AMD
In my personal opinion, I'd recommend an Intel/AMD build. I've heard a lot that AMD cards are as good as Nvidias' for less, but I'd recommend Intel processors as my AMD CPU runs games rather poorly.
It all depends on the budget. Nvidia/Intel offer much less than AMD at lower budgets. --- Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback http://www.youtube.com/sircaballero
No, but I wouldn't chalk it up to a huge loss. I don't really see many games advertising the feature, and when they do, the effects can be achieved similarly in other ways. Still, I've heard you CAN run PhysX on AMD hardware, by offloading the calculations to the CPU instead, but I also hear it's spotty. --- Isn't that right, Zach? http://tinyurl.com/5vsjbj6
