Smile Quick Question...

Hey guys. Quick question.

-What is the ATI GPU equivalent of the 8800GT by nVidea?

I'm working on building a computer, and I am trying to lower my price. Here is a link...

Please help me out if possible.
Thanks, Johanster

The ATi equivalent would be the HD 3870. But since the 3870's second generation now with the release of the HD 4800 series, it's probably worth paying a bit more for an HD 4850 (which is about 50% faster than the 3870)
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.
