The 2 460s are about the same and much better than the 450

I take it that the one I picked from Canadacomputers was the winner?

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... has a higher clock than http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?item_id... but the latter is cheaper. you can overclock the card yourself to those speeds. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is the same exact card but from newegg. the higher clocked one is actually cheaper there :p 

depending on taxes shipping and who you prefer ordering from this one is the best of the bunch http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

I didn't see the Radeon - why do you feel that one is better? Also, I am shopping in Canada, so I am using the tigerdirect.ca

5850 is around 10-15% faster than GTX 460. Different Manufacturers make different card models (logical) with different cooling and/or clock speeds. I can't really say, which card is better, they are both good.

They are both 5850 card at Tiger and CanadaComputers, but didn't manuf. and some of the numbers of the card is different - so I find it confusing.

Tiger Direct : XFX HD585XZAFC Radeon HD 5850 Video Card - 1GB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, CrossFireX Ready, Dual DVI, Display Port, HDMI Includes Double Lifetime Warranty

CC : Asus EAH5850 DirectCU/2DIS/1GD5 ATI Radeon HD 5850 Chipset (725MHz ) 1GB (4Ghz) GDDR5 Dual Display DVI/HDMI/Display Port PCI-Express 2.1 Graphics Card

Both GDDR5, both 1 GB, the only different I see if PCI express and CrossfireX ready - the PCI express is depending on the MOBO I believe, but CrossfireX ready I am unfamiliar with and not sure if it is worth the extra $10.

CrossFireX is when you run 4 of them together, btw what are your system specs and resolution?
May 20, 2011 10:20:37 PM

I am upgrading everything, so I don't have any spec yet. What do you recommend.

i really recommend getting Sandy Bridge (but not i3) or if it is too expensive then something like AMD Phenom II x4 BE or if you can wait then you could wait till Ivy Bridge or AMD Buldozer comes out.
