Your Graphics Card Company?

Recommended Posts

Depends when you bought it. The R9 390 is slightly better at 1080p, and gets better at resolutions above that. The 970 is still an excellent card though, probably the best of the 900 series, despite the 3.5GB full speed vRAM "issue"


Picked it up a few weeks ago from eBay. I'm sure for what I'm doing it's a more than capable card. I thought about selling it again and getting a 980ti, but I figure I'll wait for Pascal or whatever else comes along after that. AMD might be a better choice in a year or two, it might not. I'll see how things shake out when it's time to upgrade again :)

This is NOT meant to be a thread fighting over which company is better. I'm just wondering where this forum is leaning in terms of owned Graphics Cards.

I used to use AMD as there cheaper per FPS sorta thing but the amount of troubles 'I' have had with driver updates and cause of that killing my windows installer i switched to Nvidia and haven't had 1 problem since.

Not saying you should never buy AMD im just saying whats happened to me over 3 different computers

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

nVidia all day errrrr day.

nVidia suits my needs for the here and now, as I upgrade every cycle. Instead of "developing for the future" 3 years from now. I just don't need an inferior product as nV has the best flagships that suit my needs.
