My System Specs

I have never had an issue with nVidia recognizing a monitor or my tv. When I was running the ATI card, I would constantly have issues with trying to get the monitors recognized when I was swapping. It may not be a big deal to some, but personally I lean toward nVidia since it makes my setup run a little better.

I had constant issues with my 5770 when AA was on... glitching textures etc in a variety of games and tried various drivers...
moved to a 560Ti and they were solved.. explanation? AMD have shit drivers..

P.S, why move from a 5770 to 460.. negligible performance difference.

Review: ASUS ROG Dual GTX 580 MARS II - Graphics -

take a look 6970's in crossfire are almost always at the top
Look at the 690 review.. nothing but trouble from x-fire.. With more mature drivers too..
