Default Re: GTX 480: Worst GeForce card ever?

Surround works better, it scales better, it's just better all around.

Since you were mentioning gimmicks, six screen Eyefinity should have made your list, because that's all it is. No one uses it.

I've yet to see any gamer using Eyefinity with six screens, and even if someone did they certainly wouldn't be doing it with a single card. Even further, the setups I've seen from reviewers don't come close to a surround setup in immersion due to think ass bezels everywhere, which even with bezel correction don't go 3D they do, or at least you can see right through them due to the way 3D works with it.
Bah!, I really don't want to argue about it anymore. There are advantages and disadvantages to both solutions, and for you to try and add fuel to the fire after someone has asked for the bickering to stop says a lot about your character.

As Slytat said, it's time for this thread to be laid to rest. It started out as somewhat of a joke has evolved into a miniature flame fest, and we simply do not need more drama from an AMD vs. Nvidia fan debate.
