So as of late, my graphics card, a HIS 4830, has been crapping out, so to speak, and i was thinking of upgrading to a GTX 460. The 460 just came out a few days ago, and it costs from 199-229 depending on amount of ram, apparently this card out performs the 5830 and even the 5850, so i was wondering, dose it actually? As i cant find any legit benchmarks. Also, i have an oldish processor: AMD 7750 X2 black edition @ 2.9 (can do more) My second question is, i know there will be bottlenecking, but how bad will it be?
3d mark vantage with phyx disabled is just completely biased scores-look at real FRAME RATES and it is aparent a 460 is a lot better than a 5830 and marginally better than a 5850 with AA aplied.
Take one of both of our favorite games for example-BFBC2
Also take into acount that the 460 1gb is $220 while the 5850 is $280.
by those benchies it looks to me that the 5850 wins.
also, i too have the 7750 athlon but i have it stock clocked and it isnt bottlenecking anything, you should be fine
5850 is better at low and high resolutions but at 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 with 4xAA the 460 wins
The 5850 is quite a high-end video card.
And for $220 a gtx 460 manages to beat it in a lot of situations
and a 5850 manages to beat a 460 in a lot of situations too, i see peak framerates up higher on the 5850 then on the 460 in just about ALL of those benchmarks you linked to in bit-tech forums
1. The smoothness+quality of a game is determined by MINIMUM fps not average/
2. You are looking at the 1gb model right? Check again and see that they trade blows.
I think either one will do.
Thanks for all the responses guys, and yeah i am looking at the gig version. Good to hear the old 7750 shouldn't have any bad bottlenecking, and in my situation money is a factor, so it looks like ill try and pick up the 460. Thanks again.
