im selling my build
but im confused
should i jump to 4870 crossfire
or stick to 260GTX
Depends, have you had any issues with 260GTX sli? If not, then I see no reason to jump ship. If so then 4870 is pretty solid and flexible and there's no harm in finding out.
Performance out of both setups are pretty similar in alot of cases, so there's no real solid reason to go from one to the other.
well i hate nvidia chipset
Not overclock able as intel
I suppose that's reason enough.
.. you are at 4200mhz with a nvidia chipset, you get sli with better hardware, and i can barely comprehend you
4870 crossfire is nice, but there's no need to jump up from the 260 SLI. For all the money you'd have to pay to do it, it's just not worth it.
you're just getting greedy now! 4.2Ghz isn't overclocking high enough? how high did you expect?
No need to complain when it's a 4.2 ghz overclock, even if it's not as high as other motherboards overclocking.
thats not the point lol
im selling mine with a good deal
so the new build will be much better
10K RPM harddrive
SLI or CROSSFIRE
and go on
got it !!
Well, a single 4870 is roughly 15% faster than the 260, and are about the same price (according to Newegg). I'd go for the 4870 Crossfire, myself
I doubt HD4870 is 15% faster, maybe 5% or equal
AA/AF performace is better however.
what about the CUDA Engine from nvidia
if im not wrong nvidia is trying to get physx and cuda working on ati cards
Your overclock is pretty good and reviews show that your board is one of the fastest around.
But if you dont want an nVidia chipset anymore then its not possible to run SLI and you dont have a choice between SLI or Crossfire,there is only one option and that is crossfire.
Imo your new comp wont be much better with that E8500,right now your overclocked E8400 is much faster and there is no guarantee that the E8500 will reach those speeds you have now and swapping GTX260 SLI for 4870 Crossfire is basicly the same performance.
I would sell the comp and get an average system like mine for only a couple of hundred dollars and wait for the Nehalem to arrive.
u got a point there bro
but i cant save any money cos its impossible for me
... And why not?
The "new" pc you're planning to build would be hardly faster. How is a E8500 "much" faster than what you're running now? ...
A waste *shrug*
Three FRICKIN Thousand?!!?!
Pesos? tell me its in a unit of currency worth less than USD or CAD.... I wouldnt pay much more than 1500 for that rig.... especially since nehalem and X58 is coming! WOW who did ya convince to pay that much?! I got a P3 800 I'll let go for say 600 to that dude.... and some muffler bearings and a baseboard ladder
wow I fell off my chair....
How about 4870X2? Makes much more sense to me and more memory to boot.
that 790i can beat alot of intel mb...
i dont see how u think its not a good overclocker
Mabye you dont know howto overclock :S??
