Any ideas on a new GPU?

Ok so i just got payed and have some money left over from paying bills so im going to get a new GPU because the computer i just built in running off the intergrated HD 4250, which is not really that bad compare to the other crap ones....so i wass looking at a 5870 or a 6850. I need the best bang for id say 150-170 dollars...somthing like that. Im a Ati fan by if theres a nivida card that will give a better bang...let me know. But id prefer Ati..

  1. between the 6850 and 5870 go for the 5870. If those are the cards your looking at nvidia doesnt really have a good answer to them. Even a highly OC'd edition of gtx460 would not trump a 5870, its still a very powerful card.
  2. not really just looking at those two cards.....im open for all options...what about the 5770? is it good

    Here you can see the performance of some high end gpus.
    The 5770 is a really good gpu. What´s your power supply? Maybe you should need a new one...


  4. Yeah, the power supply is important to determine what cards you can use.
    If you are in the US then this is the best card for the money in your price range at the moment;

  5. i have a cx600 corsair
  6. Then don't worry about it. That should handle any single gpu card easily.
  7. cool...if anyone has any other comments, im open. If not ill just get the 5850 or 5870

    Yeah, the HD5850 is best choice for you I think. You can spend $20-30 more for an HD6850 or GTX 460 1GB but the HD5850 is 10-15% faster than either of them at reference speeds. For something better that makes sense in terms of price/performance you would have to go up to $230-250 for an HD6950 or GTX 560 Ti. If you are going to spend enough for an HD5870 you would be better off with either of those instead.
