How good is the ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB PCI Express Video Card? Would you compare this to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295?

Okay, well would you say that the 4890 is pretty good? As good as some of the 200 classes?

It's the best card that ATI has. It's not quite as fast as the GTX 275.

Basically, the 4890 stock card is as powerful as your going to get with ATI without cross fire or overclocking it.

TBH, i am waiting to get this card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=4890%20toxic

it is on par with the GTX 285 mostly when its overclocked to above 1000Mhz core clock (fastest core clock of any GPU)


now, 2 4890 TOXIC overclocked cards can keep pace with a SINGLE GTX 295 mostly

The HD 4870 X2 is the fastest single card ATi has?
