I cant make my mind! :( 
My budget is somewhere from $300 to $365
Ive been thinking about the GTX 460 since so many people seem to like it, but i want to get the BEST performance i can for my particular resolution (1920*1200).
I've been looking newegg for sooo long and i've narrowed it to this bad boys:
GTX 470 AMP by Zotac. With a triple slot cooler.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Gigabyte's 5850 with double fan and custom cooler.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
XFX'x 5850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Palit's GTX 460 Sonic platinum
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As stated before, i want to get THE BEST performance posible but i cant seem to figure out wich card to get :sweat: 

I now have a GTX 260 by zotac and it's been wonderfull! and watching that AMP! edition just makes me drool!

The 5850 by Gigabyte looks amazing to! a friend of mine has a 5870 with the same cooler and it does an outstanding job!

The XFX has a lifetime waranty!

And the Palit card is the king among the 460's!

YOU SEE?!?!?!

HELP!!! :lol:

I myself would not put a Palit or Zotac anything in my computer so XFX or Gigabyte win on brand alone. Just read those newegg reviews on the Palit card. Wait for Asus or XFX 1Gb models with voltage control if you want a GTX 460.

The answer to that question is quite simple. Of the three cards you are looking at the GTX 470 is the fastest. That particular model however is way more than you need to spend. For very little more you can get an HD5870 which is a better card;

2 1gb GTX 460s would be $460 well over the guys stated budget.
