    GTX 560Ti 448 or 7850?

    I know the 7850 is slightly better than the 560Ti 448 but I've heard AMD has shitty drivers.
    Example here.
    Do AMD's Radeon HD 7000s Trade Image Quality For Performance? : Radeon HD 7000 Texture Problems: Uh Oh!
    570 is more expensive, but a brand called Gainward, which I've heard is a good company, selling GTX 570 for 290 and GTX 570 Goes Like Hell Edition for $320 .
    So I do want to get the 7850, since it's good enough to play games in ultra and stuff, low power consumption but there's bad drivers.

    I would personally go with the Nvidia if there isn't much of a difference in performance/price. Far better reliability, control and drivers. Generally speaking, your interface with the card will be pure joyous heterosexual sex, whereas AMD will hand you a rough anal penetration with a spiked dildo.

    Personally I would go with the 560Ti 448 since it's practically a 570 without 32 main cores. As said, price/performance wise it's probably the best choice, also given the fact that it's Nvidia ... you can't go wrong. I'm rocking an ordinary 560 Ti right now on my work PC and I've got to say, I'm pleasantly surprised. I completely stopped using my gaming PC because it just works well enough with all the major games but doesn't cause your room to turn into a sauna or drain horrible amounts of power. The 560 Ti should be more than enough imo
