Default xfx 4890 or xfx 260GTX core 216

which do you think would be the better be,
core 216
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150330

4890
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150368

xfx does overclock there cards to right?

would the extra 50 for the ati be worth it?


and this will be replacing my xfx 4850 with either of them eventually, sometime, hopefully...lol

Well, According to These benchmarks, the 4890 beat the GTX 260 by a good bit in all but one game. So I would personally go for the 4890.

It looks nice, but IMO, it isn't enough to justify $50. A little bit of overclocking on the 55nm cards will get you up there fine.

$90 sniper, what do you think?

EDIT:
i would never go with sparkle, but other than that all brands are about equal when it comes to video cards
