I did.. from a gtx 260 to a Hd 4890
I switched in the opposite direction. From a HD4870X2 to a pair of GTX285s. I need them to code in CUDA and OpenCL (And ATI's support for the latter is still lacking), though, so I am not really representative of a common user. I traded the HD4870X2 for one of the GTX285s plus some cash and then bought another about a month and a half before the Fermi/Thermi launch.
I switched to a 5870, but I'm going back to my GTX 280...games look so much better with nvidia.
I also switched in the opposite direction after two RMA's from hell with a XFX HD4870x2. I've had a GTX 285 since last summer and my GTX 480 should be here this week.
heh, never buy dual GPU cards. they always fail.
i went nvidia to ATI, but before the 5K cards came out
That sounds like such a fanboy comment, I'm afraid. It's really hard to tell the difference, and if anything, ATi has tended to have better quality but slower speeds. At least, it has the few times I checked in the last ten years.
Me? I switched from a GeForce 2 to a 9700pro and I never looked back. I've owned and built machines with dozens of cards from both manufactures, but for the last five years I've only personally used ATi (including my current 5770 and my wife's 5870) and I'm not touching nVidia again. Also, Fermi is not my cup of tea. Count me in as a ship-jumper
ATI wins on image quality from long ago....
That sound's like your wife wears the trousers mate
Both company's make good cards , ATI just do it for me atm.
My case was too small for the 5870 lol...was such a sad day. She got the 5870, and I get to wait for the 6K series
overwhelming consensus from the moderators (i got outvoted) states that this thread is designed as a troll.
Locking it now.
