if i still owned an HD 4850, I would have considered GTX 470 but the HD 5850 is too attractive........ (HD 5850) 150 Watts Vs (GTX 470)215 watts. I need to watts for something else.....

I use a Zalman 500 watt power supply for

AMD Phenom II X4 955

HD 5850

4 Gigs of RAM without a single Hiccup and it is so cool and noise is almost silent.... but I bet I cant try that with even a GTX 470....

these things concern me... and I have been buying 500 watts for over 5 years

The GTX 470 is £320 which is £100 more expensive that my HD 5850 and only offers 5% to 10% performance. NOT COOL Nvidia and to make matters worse, both GTX 480 and GTX 470 suck a lot of power and generate more heat. SOOOO NOT COOL. Check out this Anandtech review. The March 26 lauch was a paper launch with availability by April 12. SOOOOOOOOOOOO NOOOT COOL

GTX 400 is an epic fail and I am not prepared to pay £100 more for a 5% to 10% boost over my HD 5850

I compared it with WIndows 7 Release Candidate....64-t edition which works like a charm....I am playing Crysis Warhead in 64-bit mode, Mass Effect. GTA IV... all on Windows 7 Release Candidate 64-bit

I ran 3D Mark 06 benchmark using the following specs:

AMD Phenom X4 9950BE

4Gig RAM

ATI HD 4850

Windows 7RC 64-bit and Vista SP2

To my surprise, 7RC is a better gaming machine thsn what Vista Beta/RC was 3 years ago which really says alot about 7. Currently i play 90% of my games on 7RC 64-bit... Instead of wiriting down the comparison here....look at the figures on this page
