I just need a quick answer which one is better between GTX460 1GB and HD6850.
According to
GTX460 is better than HD6850, but according to
HD6850 is better. Which one is the correct one?

A friend of mine told me that without OC HD6850 is a better choice, but if both is OCed GTX460 will overpower HD6850 easily.

PS: in my country GTX460 1 GB is about 10-20 USD cheaper than HD6850.

Thanks in advance. :-)

just going by what you wrote I would go for the GTX460
I usually get ATI/AMD cards
but with the GTX460 being cheaper
I think it is the good choice
the 460 is a well respected card that can play all games
at 1920x1080 at high settings
what resolution are you at?
also if you can SLI two 460s down the road that is
a great setup

Best solution

Why don't you check reviews for 5850? which is in that price range, but 6870 would be the best upgrade.

@Cronos177: thanks a lot for your suggestion. I thought HD5850 was more expensive than both GTX460 and HD6850. Based on your suggestion I started to look for HD5850 and I can even find Sapphire HD 5850 XTREME 1Gb 256 Bit DDR5 for USD 30 cheaper than Sapphire HD 6850 1Gb 256Bit DDR5. Love this so much. I think I will go for HD 5850 then.

@King smp: Thanks for your input. I'll go for HD 5850 and you're right, it is cheaper than GTX460. I think HD5850 is the best performance/price now :-).
