any suggestions and links?
Suyggestion sell the 4870 and fork out £180 for a 1gb GTX 460
can get a palit 460 for £149 on ebuyer, wich im hella tempted by.
From what i have read, the 768MB GTX460 competes with the HD5830, I have read about 20 damn reviews on the 768MB version, depending on which review you read either can beat each other! I would say that the majority (just about) have the 5830 ahead, if that was the case, I might be tempted to go with this.........
Also depends on the game being played. One thing for sure the 5830 runs cooler and isn't as power hungry as the GTX 460.
Tatty_One's £133 5830 seems like an excellent deal to me. Something to seriously consider...
hmm i may have been swayed didnt think of the 5830.. physx doesnt bother me and need to be as power effitiant as possible thanks for the link
Stay clear of the ATI 5830 if you are in the UK. The retail price starts at £165+, that is alteast £15 more than the cheapest GTX 460 768MB which is also faster!
PALIT GTX 460 768MB GDDR5 VGA DVI HDMI Out PCI-E.....
the one linked is £133 and the palit is £149..
Ummmm Thats a UK site @ £133
Nope, Pixmania charge delivery £7.40 so its really £140.40 for the Palit 5830. Spend £10 more and get the faster card (GTX 460 768 MB) from eBuyer and take advantage of the free delivery.
Don't forget that the GTX 460 overclocks like hell.
Scroll down to Nvidia graphics, there's a GTX 460 for £146, these Today Only offers change after midday I think. http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx
The HD5830 overclocks like hell in a nuclear powerplant ...
1010mhz stable without any voltage adjustments..............
The HD5830 is the better buy if you don't care about PhysX.
Good point there on the delivery charge and I agree in possibly most (or at least many) things the 768 460 is quicker, however I would hazard a guess that when both cards are overclocked we might see a slightly different picture, purely due to the bus limitations of the 460 768MB, not entirely sure on that one though, couple with that the fact that the Op likes efficiency then I offered up the 5830 for consideration..... if I was buying I would probably go for the 460 myself, just personally not in 768MB guise.
Ohhh and his budget is £140
orderd the 460 tonight
I'm sure you won't be dissapointed!
now to upgrade my psu..
