Need a graphics card

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am considering between the GTX460 1GB and the HD 6850. Are these cards overkill considering my CPU and power supply? I mostly play BFBC2 and ARMAII on a 1600 * 900 monitor.

I'm also looking for input on reliable brands. This is what I have my eye set on right now:

They won't be bottlenecked by your CPU.
There's no such thing as ATI anymore though.
The HD 6850 is slightly faster and only requires one 6-pin connector and consumes less power, but has less over-clocking head-room.
The GTX460 requires two six-pin connectors and consumes more power, but has more over-clocking head-room, as well as support for PhysX and CUDA (if you've games that employ those technologies).
The price is similar.
