Default Better Graphics Cards?

What graphics card is better for gaming? A Geforce GTX 460/465/470 etc or a XFX Radeon HD 5850 or a Radeon 4870/4890?

If cost is not an issue, the GTX 470 is the best choice for sheer power. However, the 5850 is a better value for your dollar, since its performance is fairly close, but it costs a good bit less.

Don't buy the 4870 or 4890.

Do not buy a 465. They are absolutely terrible.

5850 is better than a GTX 460.
