Hello friends,
Do u recommend Nvidia's GPU flagship the Geforce GTX480 or ATI's Radeon HD 5870...for the following:
1.OC'ing ability >>means which can be Overclocked well??
2.Which has best value of money when used in SINGLE/SLI/CROSSFIRE configuraions??
3.Gaming Performance difference due to each others technologies such as Nvidia's Physics,CUDA etcetc..???
4.Or any other GPU such as Radeon 5770 or something like GTX 465 or GTX 295 in SLI ...........
Help all,then Thanks All.........

Hi.

1- Both nVidia and ATI OC very well just depends of ur skills and the components.
2- Single: ATI 5870 Dual (SLI/Crossfire): ATI 5870
3- The performance difference isn't big but in this case I prefer CUDA and GTX480
4- What other components do u have? The 5850 is more cheap and have a good performance.

PsychoSaysDie has posted some benchmark which tell quite different thing seeing that Radeon HD5870 is better then in GTX 480 in single configuration and GTX480 phases out Radeon HD 5870..........do u think this benchmark is right..?
I think Asus's ROG Radeon HD 5870 will better since it has 2GB of mem and is of same price as GTX 480 which has 1536 Mb of Memory buffer............
Thanks for your help............

Could it be because the GTX480 is between the 5870 and 5970 but also bear in mind that the performance depends of the CPU. It's not the same those benchmarks with a 980x or 1090T that with a X4 965 or i7-860.

Not all depends of the memory size, but like I say up I would go with the GTX480 only for CUDA in the other thing I would go with the 5870 since have very similar prices BUT ATI use less power and produces less heat that means better temps for the entire rig.
