Hi, I'm app4that. Long story short I bought a Nvidia graphics card and got chased out of the last forum I was in by AMD fans.

 

REALLY hoping this site isn't biased.

Sweet! I run what ever I find for cheap. Like my newest addition my Mpower MAX MOBO I had them pull of the wall as a display at Fry's. Got it for 100us, because they didn't think it would work. *insert manacle laugh* It works.

I love FRY'S.  I will drive 60 miles to get what I need, when I need it, not some back order or "this is all I have".  Their return policy is pretty liberal too.  The AMD/ATI pairing is  the best on frame rates, but very closely followed by Intel/Nvidia combinations.  However it has been a wild trip when pairing Intel/ATI and also with AMD/Nvidia pairings.  Something about getting the registry right and that always leads to much hair pulling.  I have built and serviced those odd pairings and encountered things like having to adjust a boot load order for drivers or do a hardware upgrade and have to reassign interrupts, again the registry is involved.  Then there's the matter of patches, that can add dozens of machine cycles to running processes if not installed correctly.  Intel and Nvidia seem to be plug and play like advertised, little fuss and spectacular results.

Yeah I've spent way too much money at Fry's because of how fair they are. They took a case fan back once because I grabbed a 140mm rather than a 120 because I was in a hurry. Of course I opened the box before seeing that. But they traded the fan out for me. My 980ti is the first Nvidia card I've ever owned. Really like it so far.
