WHAT? A LIVING EVGA 8800 GTS?

Anyway, I plan on upgrading my 8800 GTS this black Friday. Problem is I don't know what to get. I hear to get an ATi 6870 or something like that, and some other say to get a Nvidia 460 GTX or something. Can anyone help me out on what to get? My budget is about 200-250 bucks.

i have the GTX 460 so from personal experience its a fantastic card. I don't own the ATI 6850 but the reviews have been pretty good. If there are particular games you play (or plan to play) then check individual benchmarks in various reviews. Although both cards are on par with one another, most games tend to lean slightly with one over the other.

I love my GTX460. It is great as a single card on a 1920x1080 monitor.

I upgraded from a radeon 4850 to an MSI GTX 460 1GB.

I can say that the gtx460 is a great card, especially if you are willing to overclock. From what i've read, including toms, the 6870's dont overclock that great.

I wouldn't worry about the evga FTW edition, which has a stock core clock of 850. As long as you don't get a GTX460 with a stock cooler you should be able to take the core to 850. I've done so on both of my GTX460's without any voltage adjustment. I have the MSI cyclone and twn frz editions both are cheaper than the 6870.

One of the main reasons I switched from AMD radeon to an nvidia card was the drivers. IMHO nvidia drivers are always more stable. Upgrading the drivers of my radeon has caused more BSOD's than I care to remember.

In short I agree with both above post, the gtx460 rocks.

I have a EVGA 8800 GTS also lol.

I would say go with the EVGA 460 super overclock+.
