I would love to get a 5890, but im trying to stay under 500/card. What are performance vs price differences with going with the 470 or 480s. It seems most reviews ive read say to get the ati cards becuase their price/value is greater than the nvidia's price/value.
the 470 is about the same performance as the 5870 but requires more power and may be a little more expensive, you would have to check your local prices on that. The 480 is better than the 5870 in most situations.
