So, I was wondering what is best for those out there using software like this? AMD or nVidia and if I should get a 680 (duel SLI) or 690 card? Also, I was told the new nVidia cards, while they have "CUDA" support that is very good, really are no longer good for 3D programs like the ones I use due to them being poor on 3D benchmarks that have been done. They say they are limited on purpose and pushing the Quadro cards instead and only get them if you want to game. Is this true or is CUDA and 3D rendering still very good with the 680/690? I was told AMD Radeon 7970 cards do not have the same issues and score higher in the benchmarks. However, they do not have "CUDA" support obviously, which I really need I think.
Thanks for any advice and help.
