    the 6870 is cheaper and slightly better than the 5850. Thats one down
    gtx uses up a lot of power for what you get, so if you dont have a decent psu, take that out
    gtx 460 should be way lower then 240. did you try newegg.com? im sure you can find a great deal on a gtx 460 + rebate
    5870 will be upgraded to the 6970 next month, if thats what you want to get, id wait
    if you got a x58 board, you can crossfire two 6850s, they crossfire really well, are quiet, and oc very good

    my 2 cents
  3. whats your PSU?

  6. i have a 700W psu ocz modxstream pro
    im using the i7 870 so the 1156.
    im thinking the 5870 would the best offer and if i wait for the 6970 or 6950 its gonna be alot more expensive about $300ish i really dont wanna spend more than $250. its in my budget range.
    dont really like to crossfire..
  7. yeah go for the 5870. if they have not already dropped the price, then wait, if they have, then go for it :)
