My names Paul, and im just wondering if you guys can help me out, im having issues, i had my graphics card sent for a rma, they stated that they dont have any 4890's to replace my graphics card with, so they offered a replacement to the HD5770.
i refused as iv been told that its actually a downgrade from my original card, they called me up today to offer me a 768MB GTX460, they said they would call me up tomorrow as they said they would give me some time to think about it...
So now my question to you guys if you dont mind helping me is, what do you guys think is an equivalent replacement for my HD4890?
is there any pointers you guys can give me?
i think the HD5850 & GTX465 is a worthy replacement... i dont know though, iv been fed up with MSY as my rig has been out of action for around 9 months now...
You need be a little patient dude.. Search on net for info regarding the GTX 465 and comparisons of it with the GTX 460.. You'll know for yourself.. Briefly, the GTX 465 has a higher power draw, higher temps and lower performance as compared to the GTX 460.. Its also higher priced for no reasons.. As for the GTX 460, the 1GB model has noticeably higher performance (especially at higher resolutions) with the expense of a little power..
I have never gone for an RMA. But i would definitely would say GTX460 is way better than HD4890. Also supports DX11 which is better. 786MB is good. But if you can get the 1GB version it would be sweet.
