I currently have an MSI cyclone 4890 while it has served me well all of a sudden the fan died and it over heated. looking for a new card that has about the same specs, but maybe change its up and go with something frokm nvidia for a change. i want to stay with 256bit but open to all other options which cards from nvidia compare with this or maybe a bit better. thanks in advance

Budget? Processor? Monitor's resolution?

About the same specs..grab an HD6850 and learn to overclock.

I agree with Shadow. Ultimately we need some actual information to go off of. :) 

And saying you want to stick with 256bit... for what reason? Bit rate doesn't necessarily mean you get a certain level of performance. Just like the actual total GPU RAM doesn't make a card better or lesser than another. There's way more to the picture than one specific statistic.

The GTX460 is comparable to the 4890. The GTX470 has recently come down a bunch in price and is a tier above.
