Default Which GPU is best?

Hey,

I recently decided that I wanted THIS video card for my new rig. I then began reading that NVIDIA graphics cards were better in general and when in SLI mode compared to ATIs in crossfire. I won't be going in crossfire/sli mode yet, so which of these cards is best on its own, and in crossfire/sli mode? Any help is appreciated.

These are the cards:
PALIT GTX 460 SONIC 1024MB GDDR5 DUAL-DVI HDMI VGA Out PCI-E Graphics Card

MSI GTX 460 Cyclone OC Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card

Sapphire HD 5830 1GB GDDR5 DUAL DVI-I HDMI Display Port Out PCI-E Graphics Card COD MW2 Game Edition

Thanks.

the palit would give you the most performance for your money.

they all perform about the same, the 5850 outperforms the gtx460 by 5-10% but cost 85 dollars more.If you were planning on getting the 5850 you mine as well get the gtx 470 for an extra 15 dollars,which is better than both.Shozzking is right the palit best for money/performance, but if you got the extra $ get the gtx470.

gtx470-299.99
5850-284.99
gtx460-199.99
