Guru3D Rig of the Month - July 2011 -
7. Why ATI or NVIDIA, why Intel or AMD?
I the 8 months of the build of this desk I had the chance to test 2 Nvidia cards and 1 Ati. In my opinion Nvidia is more stable with drivers. For example I had to feed my Ati 5970 more volts even on Stock speed to be stable with some drivers. Though Ati is best if you have 1 card and want to use 3 screens.
I still have such a trauma from 2 AMD cpus Ill probably never choose them above Intel again. My Amd K6 550 really gave me a stress full year back then, together with my Jetway mainboard. Thats not AMDs fault but my friend with Intel cpu had the time of his life
Second thing, worked hard for a new system some years ago. Finally I had my first extreme cpu, an AMD FX-57, never paid that much for a cpu, even till now. 3 months later AMD came out with dualcore cpus (4800+), my FX got pwned by a 3 times cheaper cpu.
Really wasnt happy with that. Intel -- NEVER had any problems with it. But dont think i'm a fan boy, i'm not, thats just what I experienced in 15 years
8. Does your PC live up to your expectations ?
Certainly yes! Only thing I would like to change is the raid controller, this one is Sata300, so pretty useless for the new ssds.
