Hey guys, just a quick Question.

What is better;

A MSI ATI Radeon HD 5850 Twin FrozR II £149.99

or

A SI GeForce GTX 460 HAWK "Super-OC" £174.99

I will OC the card I get to within its limits, I just want the best I can get for around £175 max.

I am open to suggestions and please no fanboi wars.

Thanks for reading

Does noone else wonder where the hell he is getting an hd5850 for 150$?????????????????????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????
oh almost forgot to answer question, the HD5850 was designed to keep up with the GTX 470 which it sometimes beats out, so ya HD5850 is WAYYY > than GTX 460.

Id go with a non- overclocked 460 then just do it yourself. 5850 came out way before the 470, so I doubt it was built to compete.

I have a 5850 and a 460 and they are pretty comparable. Depends if you want physx, or cuda cores. Go Nvidia if you are going to fold with it, but both are good

That's in pounds not dollars.

It's in pounds. It equates to ~$240. It's not a $150 HD 5850.

EDIT: gahh gsa700 beat me to it

I would get the 5850 for less money. Both are good cards and comparey. Yes you can OC a 460 but you can also OC a 5850.
