My system config
CPU intel i7 920
Mother board ASUS P6TD Deluxe Intel X58 MB
Memory 9GB tripple channel corsair (1 X3) (2X3)
power supply 750 Corsair SLI
case coolmasterlite
cooling Stock CPU fan.
Win 7 64bit

I have a ATI Sapphire Redeon 4560 1GB graphic card installed on my PC right now. I am lookign for an Upgrade. to play WOW SCII and COD. I am not sure which one to buy. also should i go for another ATI to use the cross fire. will it make any difference since my old one is GDDR3?



EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCIe $145
Zotac GeForce GTX 470 1280MB $200

haven't done much research on any ATI i would like to explose them too..

The gtx 460 is a great graphics card, but the gtx 470 is a step up. If you got the cash go for it. The gtx 460 will be able to play those games on full.
If you looking at ATI then 5870 or 6870 will do well.
IN terms of ranking these are the cards. 5870>470>6870>460>6850>5770>450

Yes you are right the GTX 470 is better than 6870 but only in Nvidia based games

So in overall the 6870 beats the GTX 470. (inc.: power draw and temperature) not only the fraps you get.
