Hi,i am looking to change my graphics cards,at the moment i have 2 4870`s in crossfire.I am looking for a single DX11 card and dont really want to pay any more the £150-£200. Is it possible to get a card for that money that performs the same as or a little bit better that the 2 4870`s.
Many thanks.

for your budget the best you can do for a single card would be the nvidia GTX 460. an excellent card with DX11 support but unfortunately would not offer 4870 CF performance in games that support CF.

Is there a ATI equivalent card?There seems so many in there range i would not know where to start lol. What card would i need then to at least be on par with the 2 4870`s?

I agree with ct1615, however for that budget you're not gonna get bettter performance that 2x 4870's. Can I ask why you don't just wait a while for a more powerful GPU as with 2x4870's was/is quite a high end system? I suppose you could always add another 460 later.

For 200 dollars the closest you will get the GTX460, and atm there isn't a ATI card on par with the 460 for its price.

You will be downgrading if you do that, the only thing you could do is add another 460 is the future.

So, +1 on ct1615 and kkkk1.

Ok thanks very much for your replies,i think that i will hold out for a bit,the last thing i want to do is down grade.I wanted to change my cards as i wanted to go DX11 plus some of the games that are out i cannot run with the full eye candy,eg Metro 2033,some parts i get really bad slow down,but ill take your advice and leave it for a while.
Many thanks.
