You think everything Lian Li is better than everything else anyway.

And SLI is out of the question now... Frunj has convinced me to buy a 4870. So yeah, that's where it will go.

Nah... I want the cash now... plus I prefer to know my victim buyer when I sell it too him. So my big bro who just happens to be a Warcraft junkie, will snap it up from me. Then it will be back to the red team for me... just hope the ATI drivers aren't a fucking pain in the arse like last time I owned Radeons.

I am using XP pro 32bit i cant stand vista, hopefully microsoft do a better job with the new windows coming out next year.

I think FB hasn't had any problems with vista drivers same with pcfreak although if you have a shread of doubt about wanting this card go for like a gtx260 as they are both much of a muchness.

I thought that the 4870 is supposed to walk all over the GTX260

nah the difference is in the 5% region i just got a 4870 because the gtx260 was $100 more at the time, i mean really both cards have their strengths and weaknesses which kind of imo make them equal now as pricing on the gtx260 is now very competitive with the 4870. at the end of the day your the one that will have to make the choice though and you need to be happy with that choice but both cards are very good.

Well the 4870 is still the cheaper option... So that's what I will go for..

And when you say %5, that's in the 4870's favour yeah.

generally speaking yea 5% in the HD4870's favor but sometimes it swings the other way, both good cards however.

depends what games we are talking about, some games the gtx260 is ahead by 11% but around %5-10 difference is a good general rule of thumb :)

I will ask you this very simple question!

What card do you think is the best ot get?... no more... aww this is better this way, and that is better that way. Straight out. HD4870 or GTX260?

it is hard for me to tell you what to get as i am not in your shoes but all i can say is.

HD4870: if you play games at higher res (up to 1920x1200 with high levels of AA) and want hdmi with sound out as a standard feature.

gtx260: if you are more into GPGPU apps and still are not sure about how successfull ati drivers will be on your system or use anything that needs physx.

whatever you choose you will know its the right choice because you will get that nice feeling of relief that you get after making a good decision :)
