both configurations are samely in price but will 2 4870s beat a single gtx 285?
also my PSU is a corsair tx750
sure it can perfectly handle a gtx 285 even with some OC but not sure about 2 separate 4870s of 1gb each
Thanks for your replies.!
Though 1 on 1, the 285 wins, you'd need a 295 to beat twin 4870's. Here's a good link for comparision purposes.http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews.php?reviewid=711&pageid=8
And keep in mind that the twin 4870's though will run more than 15% hotter. That's 2.5 times the heat load inside your case. Not necessarily a reason to avoid, but just make sure you have a case w/ god air flow. Something w/ 2 or 3 80 mm fans is not going to cut it.
2 x 4870 = (82C - 23C ambient) x 2 cards = 118
295 = (71C - 23C ambient) = 48
285 = (75C- 23C ambient) = 52
2 x 285 = (75C- 23C ambient) x 2 = 104
