Hi people I want change my current GPU for a new one but I can't take a choice between both GTX460 and ATI 5850.

What do u recommend? I like the performance of the GTX460 but with the 5850 can add a 2nd one for Crossfire while with the GTX460 i'm limited to one until can hack the mobo for SLI and isn't sure that can works.

What do u think?

With your current mobo, and if you dont want to hack for SLI, go for a HD5850, but a GTX460 with a lil OC is on par with a HD5850.

I just "downgraded" from a HD5870 to a SLI GTX460 and ill never go back ...

there's no comparison between hd 5850 & gtx 460.
Hd 5850 is the clear winner,moreover there's no gurantee that you can hack your mobo for sli.
