HD4890/GTX 275/other - Delete as Appropriate

If other please state in the space provided: .................................

Am currently running a 19" Mirai monitor @ 1440x900 but am looking to up this to 22" 1080p compatible at some point in the future. Ideally don't want to go above £200 and have found the Asus HD4890 for £164.99 on OCUK. Have read that it isn't quite as fast as the GTX 275 but is better value for money. Please give me your thoughts as I'm stuck!!

a 4890 should be enough if you dont play crysis.

gtx 260's are value for money! you could wait a little while as i am sure there will be new cards out soon or you could always pick up a gtx260 or 4870 used for about £100

Any idea how much faster than the GTX260 the 4890 is? I know that there's some new cards coming out before the end of the year but I never know how long to wait before you just end up constantly waiting for the price to come down on one thing only for something better to come along so you start waiting for the price of that to drop etc... Looking at the price and the reviews I've read I think the GTX275 isn't the card for me so thats one down at least.

no idea with the 280 mate but i have it stable at these settings

core 746mhz

shader 1563mhz

mem 1257mhz

which puts it past gtx285 speeds

the only thing that slows it down compared to the 285 is the memory bandwith

Sweet! With that OC potential is certainly worth a look and, maybe, the extra cash. Cheers for heads-up Woppy.

Well i just bought a hd4890 and i am most impressed even though i am gaming @ 1440 x 900 res on a 19inch, i am planning on getting a 1080p 22inch when money allows, i think tbh the gtx 275 shades the hd4890 and they overclock about the same percentage but i read a review where the hd4890 overclocked to 1ghz on the core and 1200mhz on the memory (4800mhz).

The gtx260 is a great card and so is the hd4870 and i looked at these as well but i had a budget of £160ish so went for a hd4890 as the gtx275 was a bit over and also my mobo is crossfire as opposed to sli capable.

So i reckon the 4890 is a great card compared to the others.
