Couldn't run My ATI screwup on the Nvidia board.... hope you keep the receipt if you do Marcus...



9800 GT here.. it's doable... wouldhave wanted that 285 GTX though.

Well.. seems i might get my xbox360 + 30 games sold by decent price.. that means ill get either Radeon HD4890 or Geforce GTX285.. pretty undecided if i wanna spend the extra buck for 285.

Probably the HD4895 would be launched soon, it's in fact an overclocked HD4890; instead of 850 it has 1000mhz core clockspeed. Might be interesting...

xfx 4890 black edition has 1000mhz core clockspeed also :)
I must say though.. im little bit temted to try nvidia again.. but well see..
285 is a kickass card, its just its costs 100€ more than 4890.

I would never buy top of the range card.. overpriced and unless you have a huge monitor why do u need that power ?  New card will come out soon and then the price will drop

Well, 'just 100€ more' is the argument not to buy it imo  :)

Anyway, I'm more than happy with my 4870, I'm not going to upgrade to a card that only offers 10% more performance for that kind of money.

Yep, looked some tests, and 4890 is in some cases faster than 285.. and costs 100€ less.. a no brainer..
