Ati Radeon HD 4870 GDDR5 . still Get the Points on Overall Perfomance .

98Gtx is a Good Card but it is not stronger then Radeon HD 4870 .

Radeon HD 4870 has more Bandwith , Pixel shader Clock , Memory and Clock speed and G-Flops then 9800GTX .

4870 hands down.

nvidia is always the better...

4870 hands down.

it may hav the driver issue … but Future is HD4870 … I hope :)

i have a 4850...yes 4850 not 4870


Id recommend you the 9800gtx.


...because u said the price is lower

...because u said its performance is nearly equal to 4870

...because i say that physx calculations can now run on nvidia 9 series cards (8 series also but i dont remember correctly). ATI on the other hand is incompatible for the forseeable future.

if i had the chance i would buy 9800gtx over the 4870 for the physx reason alone (since physx puts a lot of stress on the cpu so it can be a great help if your cpu bottlenecks the whole system)

...just my 2 'paisas' :P

prefer radeon , as i am also using 4870 and i have no problems with it . Its awesome

well i told my friend to go for 4870 but he decide sthelse he is goin for gtx260

ATI radeon 4870 is the best choice

ATi RaDeOn HD Series FTW . Great Performance increases with newly released drivers , More performance increase expected with upcoming driver updates

4870 x 2

i dont think so that these models are in pakistan ....
