it's not hard to figure out.
for games, if you want the best of the best you get nvidia.
if you want the better bang for your buck you go AMD.
Nvidia has phsyx as well. and better drivers.
AMD cards are better at mathematical problems, and they use less power on average.
if i was going to spend over $1000 on a pc, i would go Nvidia.
but if i wanted budget, or didn't need to run the latest games at the max of max settings i would stick to AMD,
I don't think the situation will change for the 2012 cards.
Your post is somewhat true, but the whole using a video card to do MATH problems is just out there.
Also, power intake differs from card to card so greatly you can't possibly make a universal statement such as "AMD cards use less power". Also different manufacturing companies' cards have different power intakes due to different cooling systems and different base clocks.
Finally I would like to state, I agree Nvidia typically has better drivers, but again that is not universal for every generation so you just can't generalize like that when going to drop $150-$500 on a GPU.
Lol, I am basically all of these minus Completionist, Creator, and Explorer. I don't know I just can't do those things ever since I clocked an ungodly amount of hours into Morrowind doing those types of things.
On the SW:ToR issue, my laptop can run skyrim on medium but lags SW:ToR on the lowest graphics while my desktop runs it flawlessly at 1920x1080 with max everything and my GPU is a couple years old. So I don't know what they hell is up with the game :/ Read More...
I dig it man! I wanna do that with some of my computers at some point... I just spend all my money on games and gas though hahaha. I can at least post a picture of a comp I built for Christmas soon. It isn't as flashy though ... Read More...
The game was just so meh. I don't know how they spent so much money on it. Matchmaking was terrible, chase missions were terrible, griefing was rampant, and gameplay was stale. No headshots took away from any skill the game could take, guns had no recoil, and everyone's character looks 100x worse in-game than in the character creator ... Read More...
