GTX460 vs 5850 vs 6870 - Page 8

post #71 of 83
I feel sorry for the OP, you guys are all over the place.

He has Dual monitors, and getting a 3rd monitor, with a single card he'll benefit from a 6870 for the price.

If you think you'll go with dual cards down the road, and would rather have Nvidia related features, then go for a 470 like this one:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814127513

It's $250 AR, runs cool and quiet ( I play Crysis with the card overclocked and on full load it's only 62C, with only 61% fan, which isn't audible ) This card overclocks to 570 stock levels, see this review:
http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/8955...e-content.html

Therefore, you can look at all the benchmarks out there with the single 570, or 570's in SLI, and no other AMD cards come close to it for the price. ( 470's in SLI overclocked to 570's in SLI for $500 )

Yes, the 6970's have 2GB but that is irrelevant @ your resolution, that only comes in handy @ 1600p, and even at that resolution the 570 is able to keep up.

----------

We get ripped off in Canada with the MSI Hawk, which is $235 After Rebate compared to $159 AR in the States
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-518-_-Product

The good 1GB 460's are too expensive in Canada, so for your immediate budget your best bet is either the 6870 or the 470 I mentioned above.

If you can hold out a bit longer, wait for the 560 to come out, I predict it will be slightly better than a 470 for $249, and will overclock pretty well.

My old 8800gt could do dual monitors, and so can all of nvideas latest gpu options...

Ignorance isn't bliss bro. Let me enlighten you. NVIDIA GPUS DO DUAL MONITOR. Not triple, that eyefinity. But dual yes.

ok, so I made a mistake @ 4 a.m. in the freaking morning - shoot me for trying to help someone out - I thought I read that he was getting a 3rd monitor, I didn't have time to read this whole thread since it's so all over the place. If he's getting a 3rd monitor, wouldn't he benefit from Eyefinity? hmmm

That doesn't mean the rest of the post is wrong but some people are idiotic and closed minded like that I guess. People like you remind as to why I don't bother helping people on these forums.

Btw - it's a nice sig rig you got there ... oh wait.... what is your rig Mr. big shot?

OT: I would get 6870 if I could afford any, as it's newest tech, CFX scaling best.

460 scales well too.

OP, I would go with a 1GB GTX 460.
You won't have to do a driver switch, and this GPU has amazing performance by itself with the latest drivers now; not to mention its sickly SLi performance.

SLi 1GB GTX 460's nearly match SLi GTX 470's.

460 is a little warmer than the 5850 little more power consuming too but the 460 beats it in every way possible and the 460 is an overclocking monster *favouritism*

Yeah but Phenom X6 is way cheaper than Core i7.
