The best decision I ever made in the graphics hardware department was moving away from my 6990 to sli 670's. Sure they did not work with every game, however the microstutter problems vanished, and sli dates back to much older games, not to mention sli profiles being extremely compatible with other games. Since then I have discovered what nvidia inspector can do with hbao+ profiles, I often replace a game's native ssao with them and gain 50% back that i can then spend on something like sparse grid supersampling. AMD have since gotten their frametimes under control, however they still seem to lack "we care" driver timelines and backwards compatibility, not to mension the lack of driver level features. I guess if i was the kind of person to not give a rat's arse about gsync, hbao+, driver level AA, and DSR, then AMD would be an affordable alternative. I've just can't imagine going back and losing all of this. Not to mention Txaa and physx. For the games that support those features. That's one hell of an ecosystem lost.
