5670 vs 4890

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need some advice between the two cards.
I'm trying to upgrade my 8800GT for another card. I'm buying them used, and don't want to spend so much for my card.

its either the saphirre 5670 or the asus 4890.

the 5670 is $90 and the 4890 is $130

w/c one is better? if the 4890 is better, is it worth the $40 difference? Thanks so much!

The 4890 is far better and the price is fair. You can pick up a new 5670 for ~$70 online.

Definately the 4890, that card is still a beast today.
The 4890 is definately worth the extra $40
