Default Re: Need A New Graphics Card

I've been looking, but it seems most everybody is out of the GTX 260 core 216.

I saw it in stock a few minutes ago, then it disappeared again. I don't need it now. It should be here in a few weeks. If I find it sooner, I will have to buy it. It seems like it's in very high demand.

What about the HD 4870, that's about as fast as or slightly faster than the 260, and the 1GB variation is most of the time faster than the 216.

Anandtech compared the 260, HD 4870 512MB, the 260 (216) and the HD 4870 1GB.

Every single benchmark I've seen has been giving me the opposite results.
