HD 6850 or GTX 460 768MB w/9600GSO 768MB (Physx's)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys. So the title says it all.

Should I buy this HD6850 ?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131374

Or, Should I Buy this GTX 460

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127519

And Then Insert my 9600GSO 768MB that I already own as a dedicated Physxs card ?

Watcha Guys think ?

They're about the same. But the GTX 460 is cheaper, and is a know good overclocker.

Plus the 460 comes with Just Cause 2 and Mafia II.

Go for 460, you can easily OC it to much higher core clock
In addition, their Physx and 3D performs more well than AMD, I've bought a HD6950 and had deeply felt this issue.

I'd go with the 6850, its faster and is also a good overclocker. The 9600 wont help much as not many games use physx.

I had that choice a month of so ago. I went with 460 due to the opinions of many. Decent choice for me.
