Same as the processor poll, except this one is for Nvidia or AMD(ATi) video cards.
Same answer as in ther other thread:
ATI, but not for long anymore. GTX295 has caught my attention.
And I'm the opposite on this one, I may get a 5000 series card for my Phenom II.
I'll be sticking with my current setup till college/uni
Booooooo!!!! I'd wait if I were you MRCL. The 5000 series might make you do an about face.....DX11 baby!!
Ati,but i am considering a gtx260.
I can't believe how cheap they've became
Fear the power of my DDR2 2600xt!
you buying? just send me one 4890!
but next upgrade will be a nvidia card aswell )
New board from pete has nforce chipset, I'm forced to go green
Let me think... no Now if you take both 4890s including the water blocks, THEN we talk.
ATI all the way woot
Ya...I'm all about matching the GPU with chipset manufacturer so I understand. Then again, being an ATI fanboy and anti-corporation sellouts I'd never put myself in a position where I'm forced to run Nvidia/intel.
I'm happy with my X2. ATI for me.
Edit : Hey, this was my 2500th post. Half way to custom title!!! Oh wait....
Hey, how'd you get a custom title already??? I hadn't noticed till you said something...
Well until I buy the 295, a 3850 is gonna sit there as a "bridge card". So there
Ha! Now you're just being mean!!
NVIDIA, ATI pissed me off when they switched over to the Catalyst Control Center making me download a 50 some MiB file when all I wanted was the drivers. That was about three years ago and I purchased a 8800GT and 8500GT in that period. My next card is likely to be an AMD product because I don't like NVIDIA's business practices of placing so much emphasis on physics, GPGPU (specifically designing their graphics cards for better performance on F@H when I buy graphics cards for games), and their recent model numbering mess. I don't reward idiots.
i'll go with ati....
Nice!! Advanced welcome back to the smart ATI/AMD world where money is not the driving factor. And now, you can get just the drivers with ATI!
Nvidia, trying to get a better card tho, this 8600 GTS doesn't do much for me gaming wise.
Ati's cards are nice, but i feel much better use my Nvidia chipset board with Nvidia cards and drivers.
I don't really care about the GPGPU stuff, but if the graphics card does that kind of thing extremely well, why not? There are people who buy GCs specifically for GPGPU applications, so why not cater to them also?
As for physics, I am all for that. I just wish there was some kind of standardization so that physics ran on both camps' cards.
