I am currently making a gaming computer and I cant decide which set up to go with.

I have a samsung t260 26 inch 1920 x 1200 monitor and plan to game at this resolution with everything maxed out

I play mostly fps with an occasional rts. games include call of duty 4, call of duty world at war, far cry 2, unreal tournament 3, crysis, and company of heroes

My setup includes an i7 920 which i plan to oc
gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P mother board
OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
cooler master storm sniper


Which graphics card should i purchase for my particular needs. From what i have read the 4890s overclock pretty well but and can reach the gtx 285 level, but then i have always be a nvidea fan and am leaning towards the gtx 275s

I also understand crysis cant be played at those settings on my budget.

Thanks for the opinions and i am open to all suggestions

At that level with your setup, Crysis is easily playable on the Very High setting with AA turned up almost all the way.


4890 or GTX275...they're about the same. Go with what is cheaper

you do have the graphics and CPU horsepower to play crysis at an OK fps on good settings. The 275 and 4890 appear to be pretty close. Anandtech says that the 4890 rules for 1920x1200, and recommend the card. However, I believe that they are close enough that it really is a matter of opinion. Both would be a good choice from my viewpoint.
