Actually the HD5850 is equal to a GTX 460 which results in 25% less performance compared to a GTX 470 if not even more.

For $190 you can't go wrong with a GTX 470, just make sure you have good airflow.

460 is still slightly slower. 5850 @ 1 GHz is faster than 460 @ 900 MHz.

At the worst the 470 is 20% better than the ORIGINAL 5850 and at the best the 470 is only 3% better

You have to also wonder if when they performed those tests was it on a driver version before they got any kinks ironed out.
If you ask me best bang for the buck it's probably the new sapphire 5850 since it is only about 150 so you'll have about 50 left for something else; definitely not the 550Ti like a few people on here have recommended.
Best overall using all 200 the best you could get is probably the 470 if you can find it at the right price, but good luck finding a new one for 200... heck, good luck finding a new 1GB 460 for less than 180 and not having to deal with a rebate

Find a used 560Ti.

Otherwise, get a 470. Just don't buy a 550, that's stupid.

I would say Nvidia can't do much for you with only 200 buks. AMD can do you this for about 210 after rebate: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=59492&...r&promoid=1320

It's better than anything nvidea can give you for that price

This GTX 470 beats the GTX560Ti, and costs $189 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...NY%20GTX%20470

I'd go used, this gen of cards is winding down anyways, no real reason to go new. A lot of members here will sell cards with warranty on them including lifetime warranties.
