In some games this is true... some that can't handle a dual-GPU-on-a-stick architecture would be better off with two HD 4870s in CFX

But B4B either card (GTX 260 or HD 4870) can't go wrong..

all games patched... and most recent drivers... something other sites havent been doing!!!

They also used a factory overclocked GTX 260 Core 216 which may have affected the outcome.

but thats okay.. cuz a gtx 260 superclocked is as much as a 1gb 4870 anyway..

and lets keep in mind we're not talking which card is better than which card at stock... we're talking dollars people...... this card costs X amount of dollars is better than this card that costs the same X amount of dollars

none of this pish posh clock for clock bull crap...

i'll admit the sapphire 4870 is an excellent deal though... but i don't know if sapphire gives a lifetime warranty and excellent customer support as evga and xfx have given me (pretty much instant replies to emails on problem and solution)

On newegg the superclcoked core 216 is $260 while the cheapest 48701gb is $240 not including rebates. $20 isn't huge but its still a decent difference.

They way prices on cards can vary I would have rather seen which one is better at stock clocks without taking price into account.
