The GTX 260 costs £137 from scan, and the 4870 costs £138 from the same website. My current screen has a max resolution of 1440x900, but I'll be buying a 22" in a few months time. Which card will perform better? Are there any more pwerful cards for £140 from Scan or Ebuyer?
Thanks!

you would be better off with the nvidia card it has more memory than the ATI card which has 512

Until the next big hit, I'll be playing Crysis most of the time, with the odd other game.

Then go with the gtx260 because crysis is more optimized for nvidia cards.

The 4870 Toxic is generally faster.
