was wondering if the 4870 would be much of an improvement over a 9800gtx. I cant really afford to do much but now that im into gaming more my 9800gtx does not cut it at all. i play champions online and get 20-30fps and thats with a core i7 920 overclocked. unfortunatly my board is also a dud for it does not do sli its a ex58-ds4 gigabyte.
so i am wondering what kind of gain would i be looking at with a faster graphics card the 4870. think it would give me 10 or 20more fps? or is that unrealistic. whats your estimate?
I went from a 4870 1gb to a 9800gtx when i sold mine. Plane not the overclocked + one 512mb ram. It was having issues with fallout 3 at the same settings i played with the 4870, it became unplayable. Big difference imo and at the same resolution your at. Go with a 4890.
