    Ah fair enough. Lack of air conditioning and a closed off room makes it like an oven in the "office" during the summer here.

    Whow. Thanks to people here hinting me in the right direction, all the discussion in between and now Eurogamer's articles, I think I've slowly gotten a basic understanding of the current market hardware.

    Just two more questions remain before i check in again in june:

    If I wanted to go for an AMD processor, which AM3+ card would be best for that? Motherboards are such an overlooked component (at least in the places I check) so I have no clue what's good.

    Back in my day, it was AMD vs. Intel in CPUs and ATI vs Nvidia in GPUs. Now that AMD absorbed ATI, I wonder if that has changed anything.
    Are Nvidia GPUs just as compatable with AMD as AMD's very own Radeon and Firepro cards, or has AMD done something that buying same-brand garners advantages?
