Nvidia GTX 460 1GB Vs 5850 1GB PRICE THE SAME

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Ive opened this new thread as the last one was not like for like

im having a hard time choosing a card
my 2 choices are

ATI 5850 1GB
OR
NVIDIA GTX 460

BOTH COSTING THE SAME, I have a 790FXTA-UD5 BOARD im using a 8800gts at the moment

a mate of mine has told me the GTX 460 would be better over all as its on par with the 5850 but also because it has better tessellations and physx which will would give the gtx the boost

I know i sound like im getting the gtx460 but im not too sure yet,

I have GTX 460 and it's awesome, it overclock really well and it's pretty fast but as far as I know 5850 is a bit faster then 460 but then agien 460 has better tessellation.
Still I would go with 5850 if you plan to get 2nd one and CF as your mb support CrossFireX if you aren't scared from AMD drivers. I had HD4850 and 4870 before and had no problems with drivers.

well GTX 460 was best bang for a buck but if they are in same price I would take 5850 and later get 2nd one or get 460 and do SLI hack later. But if you want single card go with 5850.

E:
Single card 5850 or if you plan to get 2nd one go with GTX 460 as GTX460 SLI > CF HD5850
