post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
im thinking of buying new GPU, cant decide between gtx460/ati 5850/ and got no idea what else would be worth to consider.

Crossfire/SLI is out of discussion, dont need it.

also what PSU would i need for my config with new GPU.

I would go with the GTX460 myself. solid card with great scalabilty IN CASE you wanted to SLI i n the future.
Not saying that the 5850 is not a good card but ATI cards do not fold as well as the Nvidia cards and that is my major deciding factor there.

The 6950 is the replacement for the 5850, and is also worth considering.
I'm a big fan of the GTX460 myself, but any of the cards mentioned so far will do you very nicely as an upgrade from the 8800. I've not heard of the tracer PSU, so don't know how good it is. But if it's a decent 550w unit, then it will power any card quite happily.

Aww a free 1TB hard drive! Now that is nice. They should do that kind of stuff more with newly release cards.

You may have a little trouble with the top end ATI cards, the top end Nvidia cards (470+/570+) may also have trouble, but you're not looking at those.
The 460 is a short card, as is the 5770/6870, those will not have a problem fitting.
