ok, its upgrade time and i need to know should i keep my 4850x2 or get a 5850? its a tough decision.
5850 because it's DX11.
idc bout that really, just performance
Strictly performance wise-Keep the 4850x2. It is just as fast as a 5850 but does not have DX11.
Keep what you have until you absolutely need DX11
Agreed. The 4850x2 is a powerful dual card. You likely will not notice a performance increase. If any, it will certainly not be $400 performance increase.
what about a 5870? would it be worth the upgrade to that?
Still not worth the price. Keep the 4850X2, and if you are looking for a notable upgrade, wait for ATI's next generation.
4850X2 >= GTX 285
5850 is about 5-10% faster than the GTX 285.
The 5870 is about 15-20% faster than the 5850.
Is the $400 price worth it to get 20-30% more performance? I don't think so, but it is your choice to make. I would wait for ATI's next generation which is scheduled to come out later this year.
ok thanks for the help
