All joking aside, would it be smart to go AMD build over an i7 and an Nvidia card build? I've been an Nvidia fanboy so my logic is untrustworthy on this topic. --- Origin - SuperKing61 Steam - http://steamcommunity.com/id/SuperKing61 I love you.
I hope DX12 will get widely supported fast, that should bring down CPU requirements big time. Won't happen unless it's supported on Win7 as well tho.
I hope that GL becomes the new standards and that it pushes DirectX out of the market personally
I think DX12 becoming accepted is the more likely of the two unfortunately --- We Americans will never take over the world. We're far too lazy. We'll outsource the task to India, and then take the credit for it. ~ Waffleman
quick question, considering alot of next gen games are gonna run on UE4 and UE4 has Nvidia's gameworks built in, how are games gonna run better on AMD hardware when the T&C's of Nvidia's gameworks prevents AMD from seeing the code before they are released?

It's rarely, if ever, smart to go with AMD over Intel or Nvidia.
Smart has nothing to do with it. some people just don't see the point in paying the premium for Nvidia and Intel hardware. AMD is still a competitor, nothing that intel or Nvidia has in comparison to AMD's offerings will leave an AMD user standing around with their thumb up their ass like many will have you believe.
AMD is just fine, but yes on the graphics side of things you miss out on cool features like shadowplay. and on the CPU front you're going to suffer a little bit, but nothing massive.
Search the forum for my thread using the word "cinebench" That shows you the difference that a AMD vs Intel situation will give you (my overclocked 4.7ghz 6300 vs an i5 (the catch is that my graphics card was clocked higher than the 770s that others were using)), and that's only for that type of test, there's other fields where AMD will excel. But for gaming, yes Intel is unquestionably the better product.
That could change though. AMD was the king once, and it wasn't even that long ago. --- http://puu.sh/8IK8Q/8e25ebacb7.jpg [My Rig + Specs] - - - - http://youtu.be/cfh4MK6kW3w Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.
