Hello Guys.
I am not here for another general hd 5850 or gtx 470 or nvidia vs ati comparison.
I have a M4N68T-M and a quality 600 watt PSU.
Currently I am using a xfx GTS 250?
So according to my motherboard which will be a good match?

The GTX 470 is faster... your motherboard doesn't really matter in terms of a good match. If you want faster performance, go for the GTX 470.

So I can use ATI GPU on a nvidia chipset comfortably.

The GTX470 is faster, but is louder, uses more power and gets really hot for some people those issues aren't a problem, in which case the GTX470 is the better option.

If you live in the US the GTX470 is pretty close to the price of the HD5850, However in the UK (and other countries) the GTX470 is the same price as a HD5870 and £100 more than a HD5850.

So it really comes down to

1) where you live
2) If your bothered about the noise, heat and/or power usage

GTX 470 is the ideal choice, considering nvida is still developing drivers for Fermis...

unless you are concerned about the noise, and power... but get in mind that, thats what its require to active a good card...
