the $200 price point is for the 768m card not the 1g.
This article shows the 5830 generally out performing the 768m card for the same price point. If you're going with the 460 I'd say pay the extra 30ish bucks and get the 1gb...*cough* or go with ati*cough* *cough*... sry allergies...
Yeah, I'm getting convinced on the 1 gig card at 256 bit. That's for about 249 USD. It would still be a good deal though, even when compared to the ATI cards.
Any suggestions on my post regarding resolution, etc? Would the 1 gig (256 bit) be a good idea for my specs/ resolution, etc?
At the res that you are playing at there is not a great difference between the two but if you were thinking of doing a 2D Surround set in the future then the one or even perhaps the two gig version would be required.
Thanks for the benchmarks. The 470 is the clear winner, but it's also double the price. I guess the 1 gig 460(256 bit) is the best deal for the price. Plus, it'll be able to handle things for the next year or so.
