Re: HD 4870 vs GTX 260
Coming from an 8800GTX which I enjoyed for more than 2 years, I had the Itch for a new card.
So when the 4850 came out I just happen to have changed out my mob for a Maximus Formula Asus board and it was crossfire ready after reading a ton of review I couldn’t help but be compelled by the price vs. performance the card provided.
Also given that it was putting up a great fight against a 280GTX I headed over to BestBuy and the Visiontek 4850 could be had for 149.99 ea. so for 300.00 I got similar result as an 280GTX.
I purchased 2 of them for a little Crossfire action and couldn’t be happier. My purchases are based on best bang for the buck 4850 is just that especially at 300.00 a pair.
