Someone told me there are new high end graphics cards coming out in June/July this year. I'm about to build a gaming PC and am picking out the vid card. I'm not sure if I should wait until the new ones come out or if the ones available now will be a better value.
Does anyone know anything about the price/specs/anything?
ATI has the 4850 and 4870 coming soon. $200-250 price range and twice as fast as the current 3850/3870. NVidia has the GX260 and GX280 coming about the same time. Bout twice as fast as current 8800GT and 8800GTS. Price will be $400+ Google them for more info. I would wait if you can afford either. If you are looking for sub $200, now will be as good as next month.
if i was u i would get 2 4870's for CF over the gtx280 since the 4870 CF will probly out perform a single gtx280 at a cheaper price and you can probly overclock the hell out of them too whereas the 2tx280's overclocking potential will be limited by its size and temp. Then get an 8400 & you'll be set for a while, plus nvidia chipsets make me want to rape babies and then put them in a food processor for at least an hour, then pour it into the school lunch(even though i have one). intel makes way better chipsets so 4870 CF for sure
