I generally prefer nVidia to AMD when it comes to GPU, but thats a personal preference.Hi all,
New here but having recently sold my iMac I really don't want to wait until the refresh for SSD as standard and this looks very appealing!
May be a silly question, but does the brand of the GPU matter? Looking at an ASUS GTX 760, would the setup be the same? Any other advantages/disadvantages between the two GPUs?
EDIT: It is indeed a silly question! Didn't see the MSI GPU used here was ITX compatible! Will continue the search I suppose!
If I was buying again, I would get a mid-high spec nvidia from the recommended list in the Buyers Guide.
With regard to my 760 in this build, its not specifically ITX compatible as such, I don't think there is such a term. They are marketing it as an ITX card because of its diminuitive size, so its a good choice to put in a smaller case that may have limited room for full size cards.
Lots of manufacturers are now fairly and squarely on the ITX bandwagon, but the graphic card manufacturers, they just don't seem to be catching on or they just don't care for that segment of the market. Big mistake IMHO.
