    Exclamation Im power hungry! >_<

    Ever since i started over clocking i wanted the best performance i can get outa my gaming, of course everything in my rig is super good except my video card and i cant wait any more i need to get one now! >_<

    Which is better?
    EVGA GeForce GTX 275 633MHZ 896MB 2.26GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDTV Out Video Card

    oR


    XFX Radeon HD 4870 X2 750MHZ 2GB 3.6GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI PCI-E Video Card
    http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...3&promoid=1187

    OR


    Stick to the game plan and wait till boxing day where hopefully the GTX 295 is cheaper and i get that?

    As well i wanna know what the big deal about having more memory on video cards does this mean i can have better AA etc? Also let me know which one has better over clocking capabilities cause i will over clock

    The X2 will be faster than the 275. More memory helps high resolutions.

    If you want to play in resolutions over 1920x1200 with all the eye candy, then more memory will help. Otherwise if you play in no more than 1680x1050, then more memory wont help as much.

    on a 19" monitor 1400*900 max, my 4870 plays any game on max settings: Farcry 2, Empire total war, dawn of war 2! SSAO, AA, field of depth everything on max!

    I couldnt even buy that x2 card as at my resolution it would be a waste, even a 512mb x2 wouldnt be worth it for me at my res!
