Default gotta stop torturing myself!

For the last month, I decided against going with the stable and went amd for my vid card instead of a gtx 770. I went with a r9 280x to save myself a measly $20. You may call it fanboyism, but i have felt anxious up until this day about having the card. Sold it off to end the torture of bad driver uninstalls and generally the massive growing pains of amd users. I did learn to respect the amd gpu user more now that they go with what they choose. I just couldn't take the pain anymore. When I looked at my brother's card, I felt a peace come over me (seriously) and took action immediately to sell off the card. It may sound funny, but ever since I owned two 6990's that couldn't outmatch a 3gb gtx 580 at the time, that stuck in my head and my subconscious woke me up again to reality. NV just does it right. Driver installs right. You can fresh install by checkboxing in the nv installer. NV drivers don't leave bits behind. And most of all, nv doesn't need a seperate uninstaller that screws up your ability to uninstall programs in win 8.1's program and features menu. And what I did find out was a near a 10 step process to manually get amd drivers out completely. To sum things up, NV is simple and staight forward and amd for me is a torture.
