I really haven't kept up on GPU tech the past few years. I know AMD has ditched the ATI name brand in favor of there own. Has this brought any quality concerns with it? Is AMD still making the better cards? Last I knew NVIDIA cards were performing about equal, but draw more electricity and therefore generating more heat. I may be looking to replace my old 4890, and looking for something equivalent in terms of performance. My old 4890 is still running fine, but sounds like the bearing on the colling fan may be going out. So I am debating on weather to simply slap a new VGA cooler on it, or go for the upgrade depending on what the cost is. Can any one recommend a VGA cooler for my 4890 as well as a new GPU equivalent to a 4890?
