Gtx 260 watercooled or Ati 4870 watercooled?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to decide which card to buy. Both will be watercooled, so really it's between the fastest speeds on both card. OC to OC, not stock.
Which card will be faster in games?

HD4870 is much better. In some cases it will be faster than even the GTX280, especially when you crank AA up to 8x.

Hmm.. Both overclocked the 4870 wins? This makes my decision harder.
Anyone with benchmarks outside of stock?

4870>GTX260. I'm trying to figure out whether I want to buy a 4870 and keep the stock cooling and then water cool my cpu, or if I want to water cool my 4870 and leave my cpu with the Tuniq Tower. Hmm, decisions decisions.

Yeah, it's pretty much been proven through multiple reviews that the HD4870 performs on average better than the GTX260, yet typically costs less.
