Well for sure hardware cannot age smoothly forever. But, expectation to work properly is justified and needed. It gives it to my nerves sometimes that I encounter bugs even with on-line surfing web browsing or HTPC usage or Productivity. Believe me with AMD I have not a single problem in gaming. In fact I enjoy my card even if it is more than 2,5 years old. At least for the games I play and they are far more than 100. I can't accept anyone from any forum even from "gurus" here, that I don't understand what a bug is or instability. I will not give the holy grail to neither AMD nor Nvidia. Facts are facts. I cannot accept toxicity against AMD users who do not give indulgence for ATI's weaknesses. The smart and educated customer always has a love hate relationship with products and services. It will not change from fanboyism and fanaticism.
