AMD or nVidia

This may have been done before, but for a little fun duel with the tech heads of the site, name your "Alliance"............. and why?

Note: This is for gaming and compute performance. Just curious as to why you picked your specific poison!

nVidia no question.

AMD cause Nvidia has gotten to damn greedy that its not even funny plus that Mantle thing looks pretty innovative compared to that PhysX and based on the articles and etc... As ps4, Xbox One and wiiU start to have tons of games coming out, Mantle will be used in most if not all of those ports for PC unlike the 5 games that use PhysX for Nvidia and it should elevate the biggest complaint against AMD which is their slower driver support

AMD because I've always had AMD in the PCs/laptops I bought so I decided to go with AMD for my GFX card upgrade.

I could potentially go nvidia in the future or go straight to AMD again depending on how both change in the next few years.

Currently rocking a AMD Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 2GB DDR5 OC *_*!

AMD cause now they care more about compute performance.

Chose AMD because, Price/Performance, that is the only reason and the only reason I stick around with the company.
Same reason why I chose the 3930K over the 3960X/3970X, also the same reason I'm not upgrading to Ivy Bridge-E, almost $700 for a couple of percentage points? No thanks, I can overclock that difference.

Money is better in my pocket than some overseas company! :P

I've tried both companies, and i'm leaning in favor of AMD. I've had nonstop driver issues with this GTX680 whereas my HD 5850 was home free for a long time.

I will be going back to AMD for my next card.

Used to be ATI, always used their graphics cards. Not sure why I did, but I did.

I've had a few problems with them to where they would start not working.

So I switched to Geforce or NVIDIA i guess for latest and so far its been amazing. So at moment I'm a Nvidia fan.
And I will continue to be one until they let me down.

Trust me. You get driver issues in both camps.
At the moment the big issue with AMD is frame pacing which is being resolved.

Also, nVidia has Adaptive V-Sync which is fantastic in practice, you have to use a 3rd party tool to get the same functionality on AMD cards.
