5970 of course. It's the only dual gpu there. To give you an idea...

Radeon 5970 > GTX 480 > Radeon 5870 > GTX 470 > Radeon 5850

The 480 and 5870 trade blows and it generally comes down to the game, same with the 470 and 5850.

You can just google it but just to start you off, I give you the link below and just click away... its quite intuitive... You can get all prices for the different cards by setting the filters.

Of course the price only apply to the US. IF you are not from there, then it won't apply. Tell us where you are.

Nvidia hasn't released any dual gpu cards this generation

Price from cheapest to most expensive goes in this order (actual numbers depend on where you are):
5850<GTX470<5870<GTX480<5970
Thats assuming you can find a GTX 470/480 or 5970 in stock.
Approximate US prices are around:
$300< $350 <$420< $500 <$700

can all of these card except the 5970 [of course ] can work 'clearly' with any bottlenecking with a core 2 duo ??

That depends on the clock speed of your C2D. If you have it clocked high enough, then yes- you should be ok. But if not clocked high enough, you'll be bottlenecked a bit on pretty much all these cards. You probably want to get your CPU over 3.0GHz at least, possibly more to totally let these cards run, but it also depends on your resolution. The higher the resolution, the more the bottleneck shifts to the GPU.

the clock stock speed is at 2.8 Ghz ....and now at 3.6 Ghz ....is it ok??

The bottleneck will be decided by the resolution of your monitor and how CPU intensive is the game you play. In most games, the load is on the GPU so I think an oveclocked C2D will keep up even with the 5870 at least up until at 1920x1080. The 1920x1080 is not too strenous for the CPU. I got an AMD X2 5200+ playing at 1920x1080 with and lags only during the most intense scene in Prototype. In L4D it plays beautifully.

So what resolution are you playing at & what games you want to play?
April 14, 2010 12:08:12 PM

I have my monitor at 1680X1080

for the games i want to quite all the lastest of them in (recommend system requirement as possible)

With your CPU at 3.6GHz and playing at 1680x1050, you shouldn't be bottlenecked by the CPU:-)

Nvidia 6600 GT....

Okay. The video card has to be replaced cause it is not powerful enough for your 1680x1050 monitor. But you don't need 470 or 5850 (much less a 480 or 5879/5970). For your monitor resolution I believe an HD5750 will be more than enough for most games. If you play crysis, then get the HD5770.

I want to the tessellation of the Nvidia new card and to experience the PhyX of Nvidia not to forget DX11!!!!!

DX11 is available in the HD5XXX too... But if you want PhysX & tesselation ( for whatever it does ), then go ahead & get the 470/480 as you wish... Hope you can find it from where you are.

The only thing the Nvidia cards add over the ATI ones is PhysX- the ATI cards do Tessellation just fine. a 5770 might struggle with extreme tessellation, but I don't think there's a REAL GAME that would do that yet. A 5770 is probably enough for you, but if you want to make sure you can handle some pretty intense tessellation and stuff, the 5850 is great (and super OCable). PhysX really adds very little to the experience, and is pretty gimmicky in my opinion- never seen a time where PhysX made me say- I wish I had that. Its always been- thats all that PhysX adds?
