Hi,
Im thinking about buying one of these video cards and cant decide which one, the 465 is cheaper then the 5850 but not sure whether the 5850 would be worth spending just that bit extra, can someone help??

Neither. Benchmarks are showing the $200 GTX460 better than the 465, and almost as good as the 5850 . The 1gb version iseven better.

If you are gaming at 1920 x 1200, then such a card as the 5850 is good. If you are gaming at a lesser resolution, then perhaps not.

its cheaper because it perform less than 5850 (at stock clock). if you're looking something with the performance of GTX465 then just go straight for GTX460 1GB 256bit version.

5850 or 470 don't settle for less and make sure whichever one you choose has voltage control.

right. im probs getting annoying saying this, but i recommend until the "475" comes out. the 465 is crap. id say overall get the asus CU 5850, great card.

Im holding off on my new build till the 475 comes out. However, if you're desperate to get a new card now, go for the 5850. its better than the 460 1GB

smart man, im getting tired of telling people to wait up a bit, they are all gonna get burned who get a 5850 or 480, or even 5870. and the 5850 is more powerful, but the 460 is cheaper, by quite a bit, it cooler/quieter/less power.....so overall its much better. the point is moot however as there are none in australia. is it a shipment problem, or are u just not gonna get any?
