But right now, I am sticking to green team for the most part.
    You brought up something that I forgot is nice about AMD. Right now, their Freesync monitors can easily save you anywhere from 1-200 bucks from Gsync. I'm testing out a Viewsonic Freesync right now and I have to say, adaptive refresh rates are one of the best features I'd always look for now. The monitor and GPU costs can certainly help for someone on a tight budget.

I had a couple of very nice ASUS cards, and also had a couple of great HIS cards (but those were 48XX series, a lot may have changed since then). I have never owned or used an AMD card by MSI or Power Color. And who sat down and thought "Power Color would be a good brand name"?

    Oh, but I should add......my only interaction with Sapphire customer service was awful. It was a really odd circumstance, though, so I am giving them a pass.

    For those interested, Phoronix did a comparison of multiple generations of x60 cards on Linux.

    Neat article.

    +1 for EVGA GPUs. I have 2 reference GTX 780 with EKWB blocks installed. Both are OCd (+207MHz Base Clock, +496MHz Memory Clock, +37mV), what ever I have throw at them, they swallow without the problem (games, heavy CUDA video coding / encoding, CAD Rendering...), and the temps never vent over 45C (after playing MML all maxed out for hours). Now I'm waiting for 2x Titan P or 2x 1080 Ti to replace them. I'm using EVGA GPUs since my first GTX 285 and never had a issue with any of it.
    My First EVGA GTX 285 GPU

    my GTX 480 + GTX 470 (for PhysX)

    then my 3x GTX 580

    and finally my 2 GTX 780 + EKWB bolcks


    Always look beyond the limits...
