One last debate on gpu. ATI 5850 or GTX 470. - Page 5

post #41 of 47
Had a HD 5850 and GTX 470 and most DX9, DX10 games like Crysis, Starcraft II HD 5850 was faster then GTX 470. Drivers personally were better with the HD 5850 then GTX 470. Also unless you are really lucky and get a very low VID GTX470 its going to run very hot and to counter that heat you are going to be forced to use high speed fan.
In short from my experience HD 5850 was better for me. If you like to think that my card has CUDA, PhysX, Better Nvidia Drivers then get the GTX 470. They both OC very well. I hit 800Mhz with GTX 470 @ 1.087v and got ~ 97C @ 90% fan speed in 10 loops of Crysis. HD 5850 got 1000Mhz @ 1.275v hit 73C @ 73% fans speed with reference design cooler.

Fanboy


ATI AMD Drivers ARE Pretty good for SINGLE GPU's

AND the 5850 is faster in dx10 / dx9 ( Most of the games)

but the 470 is cheaper nowadays

no truth. Nvidia has it's problems too, but you see more issues with ATI (The 5850 was an ATI product, not AMD. Just because ATI evaporated into AMD doesn't mean the product suddenly changes). and where are you getting your reviews for the 5850?

That was back in march, I'm sure the 260.99 drivers have quite the improvement over what they were using in the review.

Fanboy what?!?!?

Get your facts straight, I was advicing him to get a GTX 460 FTW, which btw spanks your GTX 470 heatbox.

And I'm truly sorry you guys with GTX 470s got duped into buying them, are now in denial that they are heatboxes, and now are trying to get others to share your misery, move on.

Don't trust me, check out every other review site or ask real-life people with a GTX 470, not these sad keyboard warriors trying to get others unto their miserable choices.

You made a mistake, man up.
Shhh!

Stick with Nvidia, You will many people who have had issues with Ati and switch to Nvidia and much less vice-versa. Safe yourself the headaches and stick with Nvidia.
