Default Video card decision.

Hey there, I'm currently shopping for a new Video Card and have come down to about three choices but can't decide which one. I'd like some feedback as to which one you think would perform the best.

If you have any suggestions other than these within the same price range feel free to add them. Thanks!

I'd go with the 4850. It has comparable/superior performance against 9800GTX and is cheaper. (my 4850 beats my 8800GT into the floor)

1) He's asking out of those 3 cards or similar price range...not $100 more.
2) I would go with the 8800GT

Well I was looking that the one you posted, which after the 8800GT MIR, would be $50 more expensive. For $15 I would take the 4850 no questions asked.

$50 isn't that bad for the advantages you gain with the 4850.

Just a really solid card in all results.


Plus you can drool over xfire till you get that 2nd 4850

Cheapest 8800GT is $130 after MIR.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161235
Cheapest HD 4850 is $165 after MIR.

That's a $35 difference. It all depends what resolution he runs and if he thinks he needs the extra performance.
