I am planning on getting a new PC built. I will be using it for gaming, so a ive decided the processor im going to go with. However i am having some problems deciding on the graphics card i want to have installed. Here are some of the cards I have looked at:
Here's a bench comparing the 5850 to the GTX460 1GB. Some games the 5850 is better, in others the 460 wins. So it depends which games you wish to play, also which resolution. The 460 is substantially quieter at load. None of the cards would be a bad choice. For my uses and the fact i like a fairly quiet rig, i'd go with the 460 (i also play WoW which works better with the nVidia card.
don't take 768MB version, EVGA's card is really nice, but avg 5850 performs 5-10% better than 460, but i'd take 5850 over 460 if it'd be for lower price, it has lower power consumption avg is better, if you can OC the 460 like 25% and 5850 like 20% then it'd even then better than 460, but it's kinda hotter than 460
