Is there something specific to make me choose a new gpu?
Or should i go solely based on benchmarks?
Seriously, I've been trying to choose between the 480 and 5870 for two weeks now, but everywhere it's just fps and temp.
Now obviously fps are most important, temp too, and if I go by that then I should go for the 480 (performance over temps), but the difference is not heaven and hell. So I find myself wondering about picture quality, features and drivers. And since I have had nothing but good experience with Nv and Ati, both these cards are about equal, and none of them really offer something to write home about (in the long run) besides performance, then I should take the 5870 as it is cheaper.
I respect most of you users here on the news, so help a fellow nerd out.
