I have to agree with Kurahk7: I think it best if you figure out your needs based on your existing system (CPU, PSU, RAM, cooling), anticipated upgrades, and primary usage. Also, any chance of SLI or XFire in your future?
First challenge: ATi or NVIDIA.
ive already considered his needs based on his existing system , he has 100 quid , not 1000 , there is no option for sli or xfire without a major upgrade , its simple , he has 100 pounds and he wants faster performance
I suppose it could be argued that simplicity consists of consulting a guru and following his or her advice in all matters within one's sphere of existence. I'm new here but there appears to be more than an adequate supply of gurus who populate Windows 7 Forums. Better would be to consult several gurus (Google, e.g.), attempt to divine a consensus therefrom, and follow their advice. In this example one would be tripping over gurus.
Best is to cultivate a working understanding of computer components; then familiarize oneself with what is available and how it would nexus with one's needs, one's system, one's plans, one's budget; and then make that informed decision, "What is best for me."
So, let me reiterate and invite folks to waft technical vis-à-vis my initial query: which should ViperMWC buy: ATi or NVIDIA? Why? Simple answers only, please.
P.S. I would not let NVIDIA in my house, let alone my case. Now that's simple!
