Probably the 6870.....however, if Nvidia has the better drivers, perhaps the 460. shrkbay a b U Graphics card October 23, 2011 12:03:44 PM You cannot even compare these 2. 6870 is ~20% faster than a 460, while consuming same amount of power. 500W PSU should be enough, but make sure you get a good one *like Corsair, Antec etc.* Related resources GTX460 M vs Desktop HD 6870 - Forum GTX 460 or HD 6870 ? - Forum Upgrade to Radeon HD 6870 form Gtx 460 - Forum Radeon 6850 vs Radeon 6870 vs GTX 460 - Forum Sli GTX 460 or 6950 or 6870 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Depends on were you buy from, but XFX has lifetime warrenty in the USA i believe. henrytowns October 23, 2011 9:36:59 PM should actually compare gtx560ti with 6870. and then u should choose gtx560ti if u love physx else 6870 is the ultimate choice. (i have a 560ti btw and i faced the same decision question) yummerzzz a b U Graphics card October 23, 2011 9:40:56 PM henrytowns said:should actually compare gtx560ti with 6870. and then u should choose gtx560ti if u love physx else 6870 is the ultimate choice. (i have a 560ti btw and i faced the same decision question) No, you compare the HD 6870 with the GTX 560. You compare the HD 6950 with the GTX 560 Ti. shrkbay a b U Graphics card October 24, 2011 3:28:05 PM ^No, you can compare 6870 with 560Ti and non-Ti. You can also compare 6950 with the 560Ti and 570. Why? Performance difference between them is around 10%. OP: Mostly all brands are good, just pick the one you like the most. Djentleman a b U Graphics card October 24, 2011 5:28:23 PM I think the 6870 is your best option considering it does better than the 460. But its not but much maybe a 5 - 10 % performance increase nothing massive. It basically comes down to which do you prefer; Nvidia; or ATI? shrkbay a b U Graphics card October 24, 2011 6:14:05 PM ^LOL? 5-10%??? It's around 20% Can't find your answer ? Ask !
