The fan is out of stock.

At lower resolutions (1680x1050 and below), there won't be much difference between the GTX 275's performance and the GTX 285. Maybe 4-5 fps, but that isn't easily noticeable.

Edit: The Call of Duty 4 and 5 that come with the 285 are a $100 cad value, and there is a $30 usd rebate on it. If you planned on buying either or both of those games separately, the 285 is a great deal though.

Everything will work... IrkJab has a goop point with the GTX285. It comes with 2 good games.

The only thing I question is why would you spend $430 on a GPU and turn around and get a $87 CPU.

yeah don't spend so much on a gfx card if you are going to use it with a really poor cpu in comparison.

best idea would be a p2 720 and 4890

Or even a higher wolfdale, like a E8400 or quad core.

yeah but the 720 gives you the best of both worlds kinda and a better gfx card because it saves you money on the cpu and motherboard if you get a cf or sli motherboard.

I just threw it out there. one of the newer AMD PII's would be nice as well. The total system cost is lower than the new i7's.

1) I think people are hitting 4Ghz with these. Is a x9 mutiplier, so at a 400 bus you are at 3.6Ghz which would run DDR2 800 in a 1:1 ratio. If you want 4Ghz I suggest faster RAM since you will be at a 445MHz bus.
2) I did say "everything will work"
3) Absolutely. You won't get a quad to hit 4Ghz like the e8400 will. I guess it depends on what you are doing with it. For games YES, the faster clock delivers better performance on most games over a quad core that runs slower. If you are running alot of apps that take advantage of all 4 cores, then maybe a quad is your cup of tea.

hmm but for a bit less you can get a 720 BE which is a superior processor in many ways, just overclocking is a hit and miss situation, you may hit 3.2ghz, or you may get to 4.4ghz.

also am2+ mobo's are cheaper than intel mobo's and use less energy.

and the GTX 285 is way overpriced, 4890 with a nice 100mhz oc is the way to go.

is the 4890 better then the gtx 285
and what am2+ mobo should i get then if the intel suck?

April 23, 2009 6:22:29 PM

the 4890 is equal to a GTX 275/280 stock but when oc'd it can reach GTX 285 performance.

for an AM2+ mobo the best idea would be a 790GX motherboard, any make except asrock preferably, also biostar boards may let you overclock further so take that into account.

I read that ati is releasing a OC'd 4890 at the end of april.
Is it at par with the gtx 285 or above and is it a good video card to buy?

The 4890 is roughly equal to the 275 gtx. The 285 is faster than both of those by a little.

I was checking out the evga tx 285 vs. the xfx gtx 285 (both regular no OC edition)
and im not sure wich company is better (performance, price, warranty)

They're both good companies to get the card from. I know at least XFX has a lifetime warranty.
Both cards are about the same price after rebate, but the XFX comes with 2 free games, I think that would make it the obvious choice.

I'm not sure. The ram you picked out is probably fine.

You could go with a DDR2-1066 set, it might allow further overclocking than DDR2-800

i changed my list a bit ( mainly because they became too pricy or out of stock)

The psu i was getting was $199 for 650w but there is a 750w for $129
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
is this a good deal?

also the gpu i was getting is out of stock so what gpu is recommended for crysis and under $440.
I was thinking of a gtx 275 or ati 4890 what do you think?

one more question when newegg says that you save a set amount of money instantly on an item how long does the savings last for?

Another question. i was looking at a pic of the mobo that i was getting (GABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard) and will my gpu fit on the mobo with out blocking ports like the ram (cause there really close together) The gpu either being the gtx 285 OR 275.

No graphics card will block the RAM slots. Depending on how wide the card is, it might block two SATA ports, but that won't be a problem unless you have more than 4 hard drives + dvd drives
