    4850, 4770 or gts 250?

    I may be wrong here, but I was under the impression if you have a 4870X2, 4850X2, 4890 or even a 4870, then they beat the 5770?.... the 4870X2 and the 4850X2 can even hold there own against the might of the 5850 and 5870!

    4850, 4770 or gts 250?

    Grrrr I began to think of trading my 4850 up to a 5770 I guess i'll have to wait 'till I can afford a 5850, I did forget to mantion one other deciding factor when buying any hardware...the WHTM factor (the Wife Holds The Money) if she found out I spent loads on a graphics card she'd kill me LoL...

    4850, 4770 or gts 250?

    Wonder what the new 5770 cards clock like? Zubasa, If the 4770 can give the 4850 a good run for its' money then the 5770 should in theory be able to give the 5850 a equally good run for its' money

    God I remember those days' ....I mostly stayed with AMD, my favourite was the K6-3 400.... In those days AMD had the measure of Intel and held them off for a while.....AMD does seam to be the most innovetive being the first with 64bit chips .... first with tri-level cache....even being 7 months...

    hmmmm Tesssallation via a software approach...... it beggars belief that after decades of proof that a hardware solution can be better than a software solution a company such as NVidia could release such a thing without hardware support!! I think there may be more to this than meets the eye...

    SoftMod

    Are there any Cards out there that 'soft mod' well?...........a budget card can sometimes be a higher end card just crippled by the manufacturer due to a shortage of lower and cards....These are sometimes unlockable gems!!

    4850, 4770 or gts 250?

    ....and yet it can't quite beat the 4850.... as I said one of the main deciding factors has to be price.... I personally wouldn't buy a HD4770 if I could get a HD4850 for the same (or very near) price! The HD4850 wasn't a great overclocker I think this was due to poor stock coolers and heat...

    I do see your point 'Shev' but wouldn't it be wise to get the DX11 hardware out before the games/software needs it, you then have a solid hardware base on which to install DX11 games/software. I do however think that a GTX 260 may be a bit overkill as a dedicated physx card LoL

    I still haven't heard much about the blue corner's entry....Larrabee ....sounds like it sould be on the magic round-a-bout..not inside a PC case, It'll be interesting with three companies in the fight!

    what do people think of DX11?... will the big 'N' pull it off this time.....they had trouble with the original DX10 suite....i'd also like to see the Nvidia cards come down in price.... The last time I spent a lot of money on any card, was the 6800 Ultra at around £350.... the wife gave me...

    Looking at some of the folding scores, the difference in PPD cannot be down to the raw power of the card, I think a lot of the difference must come from the drivers/software, surely there must be some 3rd party drivers or client software out there that favours the ATi camp.......?

    Is the folding side of GPUs' as big as the gaming side ?....... I wonder if there could yet be a market for low-end cards that could fold well against higher-end cards that don't?

    LOL .... I remember my first Voodoo card.... what a difference that made to my gaming :-)

    NVidia do have great folding scores......do you think it's due to CUDA interation? GPU's do more than just throw some polygons around these days thats for sure, with DX11 handling Physics in a different way that could improve ATi folding scores.

    What is your highest STABLE overclock?

    AMD Phenom II 550BE @3.9Ghz, 1.40V Gigabyte MA770-UD3 3Gb of DDR2800 (Generic), Win7 X86, RadeonHD4850. As this is my gaming machine I've ran at this speed for aprox 3 months with no problems. Unable to unlock all 4 cores but hey ho....at least i've got a decent OC out of the chip...

    4850, 4770 or gts 250?

    An interesting question really, as most of you people should know the 250 IS basically a re-jigged and re-released 9800/8800 series card.....so that takes us onto the Radeons' ....well although the 4770 has a cut-down 4800 series chipset, it does have faster memory using GDDR3. The 4850...

    Something i do find interesting is how loyal people are to any particular company, History lesson 101: Microsoft originally were ready to release DX10, they had to 'retract' it and remove some components as NVidia couldn't produce cards which would conform, the 'cut-down' version of DX10 was...
