post #11 of 18
You will not see much of a FSB boost going from HD4850 to a HD4870 or a GTS 450..

Save your money for a morenoticable upgrade..

CHEERS..

if at all possible, get 460. its the bomb.

but a 450 will do you well because it's way way less of a power hog and draws less heat.

My Hd 4850 is also dead. So this will not be upgrade, this will be getting a new GPU. After my 300$ dead deal for GTX470 my budget is very low. So i can get Asus Hd4870 for 70$ and Palit GTS450 for 105$.

The GTS450 is slower.



Note, the Asus GTS450 TOP is overclocked to 925Mhz but it still loses to a stock 4870

That's silly logic.
A Radeon 5450 is "new technology" and DX11
For gaming, would you get it over an 8800 Ultra, which is "old technology" and DX10.0?

Thats what I wanna know. Thanks you. I will not give 35$ more for 10-15% slower card, no matter DX11. The difference betwenn DX11 and DX10 is not that much and for the moment any game runs even DX9. Thanks for all the answers and have a great holidays and a Happy New Year.

I would stay with the 4850 till you can get something like a 460/6850. In my experience the only difference between the 4850/70 is more heat and power consumption, I'm looking to upgrade and am looking at 460/465's.

I have a HD 4870 and am looking to upgrade here in the UK. The GTS 450 is affordable to get me DX11 gaming but I have noticed with the release of the 560 and 570 cards the old 460 and 470 prices are going down. Overclockers UK have a pre - order price of £144 on the MSI 470 twin Frozer and on Ebuyer you can pick up a PNY 460 (1024) for just £125. Just a little bit more money and massive performance increase. Having said that Im gonna wait and see what the GTS 550 has to offer... But waiting around could see the stocks of the older Nvidia cards diminish. So Im kinda itchy about the whole situation really.
