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.
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.
