  1. This is going to sound like a really dumb question, but does Kotor work the same on modern AMD GPUs compared to Nvidia ones? The games are really picky about which hardware they like, but I mostly remember that for older hardware giving me a hassle with AMD and Kotor when compared to Nvidia. Lots of visual bugs.

      Apologies for the late reply, but I took your advice and decided to wait a little bit longer. I'm getting a RTX 3060 TI for a roughly 20% discount which is... msrp lol but the normal price for these things is 500 and I'm paying 400 bucks 

      I went back and forth between thinking Kotor's incompatibilities would be worth the cheaper price with AMD, but then I remembered that the stealth effect is tied to Frame Buffer Effects and disabling that make stealth look beyond immersion breaking. I don't even use the Stealth skill and I hate it. One garbage texture issue all but sealed the deal.

      Well that and Nvidia's drivers just seem much better in the long run and I think it'll be a better long term investment. Thanks for your advice! I was also considering the A770, but that video and some additional research made me realize that Intel needs some more catching up to do that I don't want to be a part of.

      Just note that nVidia are deliberately holding off on releasing lower tier 4000 series cards in order to clear the backlog of 3000 inventory, so that 3060 will drop further in the coming months. I would definitely suggest holding off on any card purchase right now unless you absolutely require one.

      My free time is basically going to get cut in half in a few months if not weeks from now for work and school related reasons anyway so I'm trying to squeeze out what enjoyment I can get. Months from now, knowing I could've saved an extra $50 or even $100 bucks will sting slightly but it won't be a big deal. I just want time to use the thing.

      $400 was also the cheapest I could find this card anyway, so it's alright. The average price I'm seeing this right now is $500 and that price was already dropping a decent amount over the past few months.
