What GPU to buy

I'm looking for a new video card, right now I'm running two XFX Radeon HD4850 Crossfire. I have an E8400 with a ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo, will be building an I7 2600K system in the next 12 months so that's where the new card will go. I've got $300.00 for a new card. Any good ideas? Crossfire runs real hot.

  1. What do you mean building in the next 12 months,you will start some time in those months or you'll be buying new hardware when you have the money?I ask because 12 months is a long time and new hardware is going to come out especially near christmas.For now in this budget i think the best choise is a 6950 or with a bit more money a 6970.
  2. GTX 570's are now less than $300.

  3. Sorry, that's how long it takes me to buy a new chip, motherboard and ram. Already have a Corsair Graphite case, HX650W PSU and 3 WD5001 AALS hard disk. I watch it with a Samsung 225BW. Hard to come by all the cash at one time. It's all obsolete by the time it goes on sale.
  4. I'm going to check out the GTX570. I've always used ATI stuff in the past.
  5. nvidia has better drivers
  6. ^rubbish, AMD drivers work perfectly fine for me. I have used both AMD and Nvidia cards recently.

    Good call. Be sure to crank up some PhysX games to see what you've been missing.
