they are close in price 114$ and 99$
i usually play at 1280 x 1024
and am not fan of noise and power consumption that's why am not going with 4870 sure its faster than the 2 but i need one to last with me until
the next DX 11 Card and there price goes down in the next year
and yes is the 1TB vs 512MB card will make a big difference in that resolution ?
so which one am confused
thanx in advanced
Using CUDA to transcode at this time = fail. It works, kind of. Using CUDA for PhysX processing works alright however. AMD supports audio over DMI. Which of these is best depends on what you do. If you play Crysis, or want CUDA, pick Nvidia. If you want sound over DMI for your HTPC, pick AMD. If you don't care about either, pick the cheapest.
I havea problem. I want Audio over HDMI + I want CUDA for Transcoding.
I know ATI has ATI Stream that can also supports transcoding, but right now for
quality issues the Nvidia has a way better quality output when transcoding.
I really prefer AMD, but now I think I'll have to switch to Nvidia.. Also Nvidia supports
LCPM Audio for TrueHd and DTS MA. I think AMD Cant. Not sure for that.
I dont care too much in games, but I prefer high quality, a fast transcode and HDMI
Audio.... Damn!..Any suggestions. Im focused on 9600GT/GTS250 or ATI 4650HD/4850HD
this thread is still running.
i did purchase the HD 4850 and from HIS with the ICEQ4 Cooler , and yes i am really satisfied
the best card i ever get,
not to mention the how cool is it
i didn't first believe it , that GPU temps would reach 39 38 c idle
and doesn't ever reach 75c. that's for the fantastic cooler from HIS
as for the performance ,, will on the res of 1680 x 1050,
i didn't face any lag in any game, all my games runs smoothly ,
thank you guys for helping me to go with this card
