I went from two GTX480's to HD6970 CF due the noise and the extra frame buffer and most of my games are running faster although I really miss DX10/11 SSAA
This comparison originated between two members on irc, hence the thread was created. I did manage to get the LCD working again by flashing the bios. I reflashed both cards.

So far so good. I still haven't ordered the active dp adapters though.
Here's one more thing, AMD Drivers have more options but Nvidia's are easier to use imo
BC2 with SSAA x2 looks focking amazing. I feel AMD won this round.

Also another thing, with Nvidia I was always afraid of alt-tabbing because sometimes the cards would downclock themselves and not shoot back up. Alt-tabbing in the same games now with AMD is much much much smoother.

So far i'm very happy with the upgrade I had and for this round for me. AMD > Nvidia.
