Nvidia's goal is for you to be able to scrimp on the CPU part of your budget and spend those dollars on the GPU instead. AMD clearly has different ideas since they are in both markets
Again, I personally hope AMD does well as I love competition. It benefits us all in the end (wow, nice buttsechs reference I made).
I doubt watching you tube videos is that stressing to be honest,but that's just me,and as far as scrimping on CPU's,we've already got more than enough CPU power even at the lowest end that only professional applications actually make use of 4 cores....Most games,even the latest ones,hardly use more than 2,and i'm talking about CPU's costing 200$ here,so not exactly high end stuff here.
