More about should 5850
  1. or is the 470 fermi faster i can right now get that off newegg for 269 free shipping
  2. The GTX470 is the better deal, go for that.
  3. but is it faster or will the 5850 be faster it seems lately that the radeons are better
  4. Ok i only have a 550w bfg psu with 2x6pin /8 what card am i better off with?
  5. A GTX470 uses about 200w, why would the OP's PSU not be enough?
  6. its new the power supply bfg 550watt should i get the 470 which is cheap or the 5850 i hear that the 470 is wayy to much of a power hog and it gets to hot.
