Re: Budget gaming build
In the comparisons I've been looking at between the GTX 260 and the 1GB 4870, it looks like the 260 Core 16 is faster (more FPS) on most of them.
Just curious, if I were to front the dough and step up to a GTX 285 or something, would I need to change to a higher power supply? As I was surfing last night I was looking at reviews of cards and such and I'm trying to decide if I should spend the extra money for the bigger card. Is the card worth the extra $150 though? I found an XFX one that comes with Far Cry 2 and COD 5 so it's not a bad deal. The reviews I've been looking at don't show a huge advantage for the 285 versus the 260 core 16. Would there be a much bigger difference if I overclocked the cards?
Just gettin some last minute indecision out of the way before I pull the trigger.
