GTX 470 Vs AMD 6850.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have seen a decent GTX 470 on Ebay for £80, then I checked ebuyer for any thing similar and there is a 6850 up for £97.00.

Questions is.... What is the better card? I currently play BF3 and will be playing Max Payne 3. Logically I'd go for the GTX 470 as it has a higher bus at 320, more texture units and 1.2gb of RAM.

What one to go for!?

Cheers,

470GTX or better a used 6870/new

I wonder if he meant to swap those prices around, or if he is just an AMD fanboy. But the 470 is the better between the two in terms of performance.

No I didnt.

The gtx 470 is second hand, and the 6850 is brand new from Ebuyer. So GTX470?
