Yeah, GTX260 with it's 896MB ram is better than HD4870 1 GB anyday :p

[ offtopic ]
BTW, why there is no quick reply box :confused:
 
But you need to seriously consider the resolutions you are gaming at.

HD4870 1GB seriously beats the crap out of even GTX280 when you crank the resolution bar upto 1920x1200 and MORE.

If you go for dual GPU solutions, you are likely to game at these resolutions.

But for single GPU solutions, nVidia has the sweet spot with GTS250 and GTX260 Core216 since you will usually be gaming under 1680x1050.

GTX 260 SP 216 which beats HD 4870 1GB with new drivers @ the resolution of 1920 X 1200 .

Nvidia forceware driver latest one is much faster than HD 4870 1GB in all resolution .

BTW GTS 250 much lower than GTX 260 SP 216 . Now everygame is coming with Physx Prototype & Fuel are completely Physx enabled .

No HD4870 1GB is beaten by GTX260 in most games in most resolutions including 1920x1200.

HD 4870 has the powerful chipset ever in the ATI , But always ATI fails in the DRIVER section really idiotic drivers .

I was using HD 4850 earlier , i play mirror edge wen i enable Physx the game is thats all becomes slow . i love the physx even FUEL game support more physx

Its completely ATI's fault that you won't be able to use PhysX in new games, 1st of all nVidia offered them PhysX, but they declined, later they insisted on Havoc, but Havoc already runs on CPU and owned by Intel, so they will fail there as well, now they are looking for OpenCL, nVidia is pushing that as well.

When I owned X1900XT ATI had the worst driver support possible, one of the primary reasons I jumped to the green wagon, and after seeing the results I am happy with my choice so far.

I like HD 4850 which is Best bang buck , after that i experienced when i first started using linux , then widescreen resolution they do worst because the drivers are stupid , @ the normal screen of 1280 X 1024 HD 4850 is best

@ MetalheadGautham - a GTX 280 is far more better than HD4870. Even a HD4890 ( which is just a tweaked version of HD4870 ) just can not beat a GTX 280.

My general opinion :

ATI cards maybe ( hd4870 ) good but they are not perfect coz for using a gfx card efficiently you need to have good drivers.

& BTW, in linux HD4850 should not suck in widescreen resolution coz ATI should release proper drivers & without proper driver support how can be gfx card good in most section & across most oses. A good card should perform similar across different OSes & should have good driver support for all oses.

I seriously doubt that. HD4870 1GB is able to compete with GTX260 sp216 but pawning GTX280?? Certainly not.

But taking into account the price and power consumption of GTX280, HD4870 1GB is a better buy and if the budget is under 20k, it's better to go for GTX275.

ATI probably lost their mind on the LINUX , they dont have support for linux , Sabayon linux has some inbuilt package that too for 780G chipset .

GTX 275 is almost pwning HD 4890 , But GTX 260 55nm GPUs are just killing all HD 4870 1GB card with their new drivers .

Even Palit GTX 260 SP216 55nm GPU COMPETES with HD 4890 1GB
