Everything else the same

The top build costs 1090.10 after shipping and rebates while the one bottom comes out to 1019.10 (with 2 free games)

My biggest concern is the graphics card..... so many choices and I am constantly changing my mind between 5870, 470, and the 460.

  1. solid build mate.
    the 460 is a mainstream card that can't handle games at 1080p very well
    the 470 isn't worth the money it runs hot and consumes a hell lot of power
    the 5870 is the best choice
  2. Not sure what you have been reading. The GTX460 overclocks very easily to beat stock 5850s and approaches the 5870 in quite a few benchmarks. Make sure you get the 1GB model. The 470 is better but as said above runs much hotter. If you plan to Sli get 2 x GTX 460 1GB models. Sli scales alot better than Crossfire as well. Much better value!
