Ok so I'm more of an NVIDIA guy lately, but on Newegg there's a rather great deal with the 7870. Buy the card (at a good $230) and get Far Cry 3 free (also Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but I already own and hate that game so it's not a big deal). My 460 is pretty much on the brink of being useless now so it's time I upgraded, and the 7870 is supposed to be more powerful than the 460 and even the 560 Ti, but I have a couple of issues though:
1. I've been told Physx is an NVIDIA thing so I couldn't use it for Borderlands 2 or future games, which isn't the biggest deal I guess.
2. AMD users tend to get shafted quite a lot I hear when it comes to optimization, and I know RAGE really screwed them over, so it might be exaggerated but I'd like to know if it's really worth being a problem.
3. Far Cry 3 is a game I'm excited for, but I did want to spring for the deluxe edition to not miss out since I'm excited for it, is there a way to get that stuff separately? I guess it also isn't a huge dealbreaker.
I'll more than likely go for it (here's the page with all the cards just in case there is a specific one I should go for), but is there anything else I should know about it? Any good deals on it, any issues I could have, etc.
