SLI GTS 250 or Single ATI 6850?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150513&cm_re=gts_250-_-14-150-513-_-Product

95 (65 AR) VS. 170 (150 AR) and sell GTS 250 for ~50 on eBay? so 150 AR - 50 = 100? O.o

If you can afford $160 you can get a GTX 460 SE. SE simply means slightly lower speeds than a full speed 460.

It's also a well-known good buy as it's a great price to performance ratio.

This is honestly your best option, although if you want ATI just get the ATI equivalent.

GTX 460 SE cards

Edit - The 4890 and 460 are apparently basically identical performance-wise except the 460 offers DX11, but still you won't lose performance and you'll at least maintain the same performance. $160 isn't much to work with considering the card you're going to be replacing. You'd need more funds to get something better.

Now if you add to it the best your $150 can get would be a slightly slower version of the full 460 you'd at most be at the same performance if not slightly below it.

460 vs 4890

How does the 4870x2 compare to both of these?
