If you've been paying attention to the GPU scene, you'll know that AMD's next-generation graphics architecture has already arrived in the Radeon HD 7970. Simply put, it's a beast. Nvidia is due to answer with Kepler, its own architectural refresh, by the middle of this year. The rumor mill is already buzzing with predictions of how the two will stack up, and we're curious what you think. Will Kepler be faster than AMD's latest and greatest, will it lag behind, or will the two flagships offer comparable gaming performance overall?

Our last poll asked you to name the best PC game of 2011. Skyrim was the overwhelming winner, capturing 31% of the vote ahead of my personal favorite, Battlefield 3, at 18%. 14% gave the nod to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, while only 10% cast their ballot for Portal 2. Valve's latest opus came out way back in April, and I suspect memories of it faded in the flurry of holiday releases. The Witcher 2, Batman: Arkham City, and Modern Warfare 3 round out the next three spots in the rankings with 6%, 4%, and 3% of the vote, respectively. The other games on our list failed to move the needle more than 1%.
