Could some one please post the benchmarks results for hd 5850 vs gtx 460 on a single card for gaming,no sli or crossfire if possible.
Because i like to make my last choice before i decide on which card to get.I know the gtx 460 is bang for buck and hd 5850 has more
performance i think but it cost extra 100 dollars or there abouts and uses either more or less power consumption.Thank you and sorry
for the thread,it seems that this has got some sort of competition going in between these two cards.Thank you again.

For the extra price you are paying I doubt you will see much benefit going from the i5 to i7 staying in the 1156 socket

:p  The only thing the 875K Has over the 760 is overclockability. But even then, most people would use either HIGH-END air cooling to water cooling if you were going to get the 875K. The i5 760 is good enough and can be easily oc'd to 4.0ghz or alittle higher. I don't think you need the 875K. I love my 5850 you can practically save 100$ and OC it to the performance of a 5870. Since your not planning on crossfiring or sli-ing i think the 5850 is your best option. BUT, what is your usage of comp? Also what resolution will you be playing games at.

If you aren't going to SLI/CF I would definitely go 5850 ways, simply because it has more brute power. The 460 really shines when it's put in SLI configuration so if you are only sticking with one card you probably won't be able to max your games. Stick with the i5 and use that $100 on your graphics - that's where you're going to see the biggest improvement.
