Whenever someone asks this, I picture a skeleton in a lawnchair outside a BestBuy covered in cobwebs.

AMD will always have some "NVIDIA Beater" lined up, and it will start to build buzz, and then NVIDIA will announce a tweaked version of their flagship card, lower all their prices, price the new card the same as the previous flagship, and go right on doing what they've been doing for the last 13 years, being top dog in a pound of 2.

AMD is good if you don't want NVIDIA. NVIDIA is good if you want to pay to be the best. Neither are bad options these days.

The game changer for me between nvidia and amd is heat and smaller cases.

My nvidia cards in small cases never seem to get as hot.

This is Nvidia's April Fools "joke". Yeah it's fake, but I seriously want that thumb drive.

Between this and the ASUS one (http://www.anandtech.com/show/11014/...cip3-and-gsync) for my next monitor looks like.

Make it into a 34" Ultrawide and I'm sold, otherwise it has everything I want for my new PC, which I started putting together tonight.

As we know RGB is directly correlated to FPS, and I may have taken it a little far.
