Greetings people of Team Red,

 

I am building a pc and would love to join your team just because I believe AMD has always been kind to the gamer, while nVidia is becoming more and more scummy as time goes on. I would hate to support nVidia by buying their 970 just because of how dishonest and controlling they have become. However, I am a bit scared purchasing the R9 390 after reading all the scary posts about drivers. I know that driver issues have always plagued AMD GPUs since the dawn of time, while nVidia cards just work out of the box and have great drivers. My question is, are the driver issues resolved? If not, is AMD ever going to pull it together? Is it worth getting the r9 390 over the 970 while the drivers are crippling the card?

 

 

Thank you,

Bla
