Hi,

I am about to buy a new videocard, and I'm not sure wich one to choose ... theres a few ones I am looking at :

Radeon HD 4870
Radeon HD 4850
GeForce GTX 260
GeForce 9800 GX2

They are not all at the same price, but wich one has the best quality/price ratio ?

Thanks,

Sam

Best performance/price ratio?
Definitely the 4850.
Next will be 4870.
Choose one of these cards, depending on your budget.
The other 2 are just a waste of cash to me since the 4800s can perform better than them in half of their prices.

But ... is 512 MB enough ? I found some GTX 260 for 228$, does it worth this cost ?

512 is currently enough.
GTX260 for 228$ is a good deal. Where did you find the deal?

Hey, about the deal, it's strange ok, the standard price for the GTX260 is 399...

Yes, I know, I think I'll forget it !! :p  I'll wait like one week to see if the 9800s prices will drop, and if not, I will buy the 4850 !

Thanks for your help !

Nah, need not thank me. Welcome to Tom's Forums.
Anyway, If you can wait, maybe getting a 4870 will be a better deal.
Or 2 4850s.

It could, but I do not have two PCI-E slots, though my MB is awesome for overclocking !

LOL funny lizard :p :p :p 

What do you mean by "You can buy Evga and then step up to 4870x2" ?? They replace old cards ?

Thanks,

Sam
