I have been swapping out video cards since the late 90's when 3DFX was the top dog. Then, it was VooDoo and ATI that I dealt with, then around 2001, it was Nividia until 2013.
In this day and age, practically any decent video card can get the job done as long as you have a powerful system to back it up. However, in today's world, we are living in a time where video and Youtube rules. Yeah, I was into video back in the late 90's, but now video has made a comeback of such. Nividia was good for games and (I thought) video, but I decided to upgrade since I had extra cash at the time.
I kept looking at cards in the $300 dollar range at best and Nivida had decent specs on the 3D part, but the RAM was still at 1GB. I could not find a substantial upgrade from the Geforce 560Ti, so I decided to look at AMD. Although I had ATI before Nividia, I had been so used to Nividia and their frequent driver updates that I became complacent. Since my needs had changed from...

I had to find the october release of the rebate on another site, since amazon only had the september rebate posted but thats ok. Also only one of the 2 free games works, but that has nothing to do with amazon, thats AMD Radeon rewards dumb fault. They sent me a key already in use and its been a month and they havent fixed it. But the card, all said, is a slammin good deal. Combine my amazon visa rewards discount and the rebate and I got this card for around $150. Thats tough to beat for a solid Asus graphics card. ***EDIT*** After using the card for 2 months now, I am still extremely happy with this purchase. Its running bf4 on ultra and i think im getting about 45-50 FPS. Ive tinkered with the GPU tweak console that comes with it on disk, or...
