So it's definitely worth it to go from the 8600 the GTS250?
And for the HD5770 would this be fine: Club 3D CGAX-57724IDP
And if the HD5770 really is just as good as the leadtek GTS250 would it be wiser to get that for the second pc with the 8600 as well?
mousemonkey: would you agree that the HD5770 equal to the GTX260 and therefore a better choice?
An extra question:
What really is the difference between NVidia and ATI? Is ATI usually cheaper, and does that mean that the more expensive NVidia card is of a higher quality?
I'd say they were comparable and if DX11 and Eyefinity is important to you then the ATi card is the one to go for, I'm not an ATi fan though and as I've been watching the GSOD issues for a while now I can't say that I would want one but each to their own.
The 260 and 4870 are about 10% faster than the 5770....in DX9/10 ...... Problem with the 260 is that it's now selling for $215 in the US at least whereas 3 months ago it was $155.....the 260 also does not support DX11 which should start to get important between XMas 2010 and 2011
As for Batman, it's a PhysX Game......ATI cards don't do PhysX.
here's some commentary on Batman and PhysX as well as what is needed to run it
