At those prices, it's the easy choice even with Batman on the 260. The 260 is a very capable card however, and you can't really go wrong with it at that price either. You might want to wait a week or two until you see the new ATI's (that's why these awesome cards are so cheap right now). Linzay September 3, 2009 9:58:04 PM ATI have new cards coming out already? some many cards coming out so fast these days! I cant keep up! I will most likely be waiting a week or so anyway while i get some funding sorted if the prices go down even lower then i cant lose Related resources What is the Best GFX Card for SVGA Res.(800x600) ?? - Forum 1280x1024 res, which gfx card? - Forum which Gfx Card Is Best For My Intel E2180??? - Forum Which Gfx card is best for my pc?

Linzay September 3, 2009 10:01:36 PM That is very tempting jennyh a b U Graphics card September 3, 2009 11:10:08 PM I hate Nvidia I really do, but that 260 bundle is exceptionally good value and I can't lie about it. But I'd still take the 4890, reason being you might think Batman sucks then you paid £7 less for a card that isn't as good as the 4890. Imo, hold on another week or two and see what ATI release at the £100 mark. Linzay September 3, 2009 11:46:13 PM yeh sounds like a good idea to wait for a bit, besides when they come out the prices of today's cards should hopefully drop even more Mousemonkey a c 271 U Graphics card September 4, 2009 12:49:11 AM More likely the new cards will just be priced higher and the old cards will stay about the same as they are now. jennyh a b U Graphics card September 4, 2009 1:05:15 AM Yes the new cards will be priced higher, ofc they will. But you do get what you pay for. If I had to buy a dx10 card right now, I'd be worried that dx11 turns out to be really, really awesome. We just don't know enough yet, best to wait. Mousemonkey a c 271 U Graphics card September 4, 2009 1:18:08 AM Well I don't feel that the Ati cards will be worth paying more for, but I agree with the waiting part as it's still unknown just how much better the Nvidia cards will be. jaguarskx a c 358 U Graphics card September 4, 2009 1:19:28 AM ATI may have new cards coming out soon; they will make an announcement on Sept 10th. The initial cards are expected to cost about $300 for the HD5870 and $250 for the HD5850. If someone has offered you the HD4890 for $120, then grab it ASAP. It won't drop to that price when the HD5xxx come out. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources I have the got this PC. Which gfx card is best for it under 7000rs?
