Trying to determine the best price/performance ratio video card (between radeon 6850 and gtx 460 1gb).
Are there issues with the current drivers for both cards? And which brand makes the quietest under load card? I was looking at either XFX, sapphire, or MSI for 6850 -- I want quiet solid state capacitors (no static or clicking sound).
My current specs are:
i5 2400 asus p8p67 LE 4gb kingston hyperx blu 1600mhz 8800gts 320mb
my 8800gts 320mb makes lots of white noise while under load - and I hate it soooo much. I have a antec p180 with three non audible scythe fans. The 8800gts is the only thing I hear from the system under load (I use speakers not headphones)

I would say go for a 6870. It's only $30 or $35 more than a 6850 and its more powerful than a 460 (for the most part).
I dunno I think the 6850 is a better bang for buck - what brands do you like?
depends on price, usually and avg 6850 is 10% better than 460 1GB
