best single card right now for under 350 would be the 4850X2 2gb model. you can also get a GTX280 for less then 380. but what screen size are you going to use? that makes a difference in what I would recommend. For instance if your gaming a 1080p a 4870 1gb would be a good buy (not as fast as the GTX280 but only 2/3 the price for 85% of the performance) the 4850X2 should provide 4850 crossfire performance but without the memory buffer limitation If your going with an i7 platform (overpriced for what it does) then look at the 192 core GTX260 SLI. you could get two of them for around 370.I'm shopping for brand new system so I don't have any specs right now.
I sort of want to stay under $350 for a video card.
i have since changed the clock speed to 783/1566/1296.Hmmmmm2 the clocks you claim for your 260 216 core are not possible!!
You claim a core speed of 765 and a shader speed of 1566. The shader would have to be 1570 which is 785 x 2 =1570. If your shader is as you claim the gpu would clock itself down to 783 or lower to work with the shader clock. I have never seen a 260GTX 216 core clock as high as you claim so why don't you post up the GPUZ and show us.
its called look at my vantage gpu score, its almost 12k... and its validated.We don't need BS in the threads just the truth thankyou.
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/epc7d/Now my 260GTX 192 core will clock up to 802/1604/1274!!
Now that is a lofty claim but then I'll back it up
See that was easy now you do the same
I'm telling you the 260GTX will keep you happy for along time to come...
well at least til the next Gen shows up.
