    Default ATi 4670 Vs. nVidia 8800, which is better?

    Which is a better card in general at playing hard games like crysis?

    The ATi 4670, or the nVidia 8800?

    Thanks for any replies,

    JimmyEdmo

    Thanks for speedy reply, and yes that's what I was thinking, but in performance wise, regardless of prices, which is better. (I am getting a 4670, and I want to know what to compare it to.)

    Thanks,

    8800GT would be better.

    Depends which 8800 I suppose. Which particular model 8800 did you have in mind? If you're looking at the 8800GT the better bet would be the 9600GT which is just as fast and cheaper. However both the 9600GT and the 8800GT are better than the 4670.

    Depends what 8800 you mean?

    8800GS 364MB
    8800GS 728MB
    8800GTS 320MB (G80)
    8800GTS 640MB (G80)
    8800GT 256MB
    8800GT 512MB
    8800GTS 512MB (G92)
    8800GTX
    8800 Ultra

    The 4670 is about the same/slightly better as an 8800GS 364MB or an older 8800GTS 320MB (G80) but the rest it's not gonna beat.

    Thank you, and I didn't have one in mind as I don't have enough money , but I was just wondering, and also, how much better are the 8800gt's?

    Thanks,

    8800gt is better as said, however the 4670 wouldn't be a huge step up from your 9600. Would personally spend a little more and go for one of these.

    Oops, neither do I to be honest , I was going to be getting one so I put it in there for some reason :S, I have got a BFG nVidia 7600Gs atm, so will the 4670 make a huge difference?

    Yeah, upgrading from a 7600gt will be a huge step up. What Res will you be playing at though ?

    Yeah I remember you saying you had a 7600GT!

    Put it this way for under 60 you could probably get the following which will all be miles better than your current card...

    ATI HD 4670 512MB
    Nvidia 8800GS 384MB
    Nvidia 8800GT 256MB (good choice if you don't game at a higher resolution)
    Nvidia 8800GTS G80 320MB or 640MB

    Don't restrict yourself to Ebuyer, have a look on the famous auction site and other places you could easily get one of the above new or used for under 60.

    Yeah that is perfect for this card i would say, you should be able to enjoy most games set to highest at that res with this card

    I believe that the the HD4670 would beat the 8800GT 256mb and the 8800GTS 320mb so if he is after power i would say the HD4670, 8800GS, 8800/9800gt would be his best bet as he wants to play demanding games.
    Although personally i think he needs to sort the CPU + RAM + HDD first.

    Yeah I think it beats both simply because of the extra VRAM. It may even beat the 8800GS, but they're excellent overclockers I don't think mine was far off my 8800GTS 640MB (both overclocked as much as I can get them stable).
