God that was one run on thought. In my mind I pictured a little kid talking as fast as he could.


The 4850 is faster then the 9800gtx+, but it matters not. if you really want to then send it back and grab the gtx260. But unless you are playing at high resolutions it really doesn't matter.


On another note, this recent influx of fanboys bothers me. We have a lot of people arguing for the Nvidia cards right now for odd reasons. Get over it already! Why is everyone so company loyal?

I'm proud to be component brand neutral! I use what's best by benchmarks and experience. Nuff said.

We need more neutral guys around here. Fighting the whims of fanboys gets tiring after awhile.

^^ Definitely. I don't see what any of the companies have done to make people so loyal/biased.

We weren't referring to you Rican. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but it troubles me when there are recommendations given on personal fancy rather than hard facts.

You get a Kudo's for that ZMatt...

So I think I should put the GTX 260 Core 216 in the list... so I think it goes above the HD 4870... While they are exactly the same in performance since G comes before H I'll try my best to put it on there... (that's what we did for the HD 3870 and 9600GT)

... renumbering these is going to be a pain haha

I was under the impression the new gtx260 wasn't a huge performance boost over the old one. But I could be mistaken. The anandtech review is pretty inconclusive and there is that translated one floating around. IMO it doesn't change much, the 4870 looks like a good card still.

because the Nvidia cards loose the 2fps lead. There seems to be bias everywhere. Hopefully our efforts are worth something
