DISCUSSION

I'm going to refrain from voting, and here's why: AMD offers the best performance per dollar, but they're terrible at drivers. No, I don't know why my AMD monitor refuses to scale via HDMI, but occasionally does so through DVI, nor do I understand why, despite directions on AMD's website (which seem out of date), and insistence that it should do what I want, it fails. Yes, I can explain why it fails miserably to reproduce some audio through HDMI audio output (tl;dr 2D clock is messed up). No, I don't understand why, despite my settings having my monitor as the primary display and my television as a secondary to be mirrored to, AMD turns my monitor into a secondary extended screen whenever someone powers my sound system on.

Nvidia isn't as cost effective, but they are better. My GTX 260 lasted from 2008 to 2013, though I proooobably should have upgraded sooner for best frame rates. My Sapphire 7950 OC performs admirably in terms of performance, but it won't play Doom 3 or Rage well.

As a current AMD user, I can't recommend AMD.
