        Guilty as charged. Intel chipsets are superior in utilizing the hopelessly old FSX (Flight Simulator) engine (DX9). It's not that you get better FPS, but it can be the difference in general stability (granted a proper configuration of course), freezing issues and hick-ups when entering crowded airspaces (like DIA with a bunch of quality high-end addons).

        Radeon will do just fine in current gen, regular games.


        No Apple products get within 100 feet of my home.

          Oh I know Intel is overall superior, however I just like AMD b/c it is cheap, and I feel that the user interface is very user friendly lol.

          I try to save on things when I can unless it comes to my graphics cards.

          Even as an Intel fan though... you have to admit the Radeon 7970 is a fantastic graphics card.

            Absolutely.

            Outside of FSX, I have no favorite because as you said yourself, what Radeons may lack in benchmarks, they make up for in value for money. You made a solid buy.

              Yup, well I haven't bought it yet, but it is definitely in the back of my mind. If I get my credit card on Monday I am going to definitely max out that guy, and buy it on credit, and then pay it back to build up good credit.

                Buying things on credit is a recipe for disaster, but yeah.. I'll shut up.

                  But, I have a job and no long-term commitments so I will be fine.
