So im thinking about what my next upgrade for my pc will be and I was wondering if i should go AMD.

Reason im considering AMD is because both PS4 and Xone use AMD cards. This leads me to believe that game companies will be optimizing thier games for AMD cards in order to make sure they run well on the consoles. I am currently running a 660ti and im in no hurry to upgrade but i will if i see a really good deal.

Just wanted to see what some of you guys and gals think.

Well a problem with AMD cards currently is prices being driven up by bitcoin miners. A big draw with AMD was their price/performance ratio, but when an R9 280X that debuted at 299.99 is now 419.99, it's hard to recommend it over a GTX 770

Unfortunately this. I grabbed my 290x's just before the bitcoin craze happened. Those same gpus are now selling for $700-$999 each online...
