Yes it would be a massive upgrade but the 1gb version is the one to go for 8)

Well on performance per pound this is better as the 1gb versions are about 25% more yet only give 10-15% more performance.
#5
how about against a 4890? as was looking at the 5850 i should think this is on par with ATI's 5770 wich gets battered by my 4890 and before someone says its DX11 and the 4890 is DX10 i know but not a lot of difference when you think 8 months back the 4890 was the fastest single card there was.
#6
this is a little better than the 5830
#7
Polly my thinking.

the sweet spot at the moment is the 5850 and they are just under £200 now. I'd actually expectyed them to come down further. As the single most expensive item in your PC you owe to to yoursel;f to look at the reviews frist so you get the right power value for money ratio you want.
#8
Agree, the 1GB version of the 460 seems to be a 5830 killer, but the 5850 is still faster and the cheapest I've since those at the moment is £208 delivered (they'd been rising in price until this week). Both the 460 and 5850 are steller overclockers too.

There's the power consumption to think about as well. :p

I thought the power consumption of the 4890 was less than a 4870?

Heres a revoew of the 460 460 reviiew
#11
The 1GB 460 is £184 at Scan (with Hexus or AVForums membership), or the 768MB for £149.77.
#12
the reviews seem to lean towards the 1gb pailt sonic which is £183 on scan and looks like a pretty good overclocker with the custom pcb and fan. power consumption looks pretty good on all of these and depending on the review these beat the 5830 and give the 5850 a run in certain situations. hopefully this will lead ati to reducing the 5850 cost!
#13
1Gb versions are slightly worse performance per pound NOW, but in truth its still the one you want for the next year ahead of games. Especially for those with decent resolutions, the extra 256mb of memory WILL matter. Only drop for the 768mb if you have no more than 150 pounds otherwise finding another 20 or so for the 1Gb version is a much better long term investment.

Considering that the 1GB version at reference clocks is still a lot cheaper than a 5850 and very nearly as fast, yet overclocks better, its probably a better deal. You can find factory overclocked cards for a little more, still less than a 5850, and they are generally faster. Both these models of 460 are the best value for your money in between the 150-210 pound segment. I would most certainly pick up a factory overclocked 1GB 460 for 200 pounds than a 5850 at current prices, which seem to have ballooned well over 220.
#14
ive been looking at the 5870 and 5890 aswell and Nvidia's new top end cards are not as fast, Im just unsure as to how much better these low to midrange cards could be over my 4890 for everyday use as the 4890 can pretty much max out all games anyway at a decent frame rate i know the 4890 is a massive energy drain but im not really concered about that and my card clocks massively.

When i look at bench tests i can never find the cards to compare against so the question still stands is it worth an upgrade or would you stick with the 4890 for the next 6 months.
#15
Sorry if I am infringing on this deal but have a look at this, its the Palit GTX 460 for £174.99 at Dabs.com , There is also a possible 3% quidco.

After spending money for upgrading my PC i realized that PS3 comes out cheaper, so i said enough and going to buy PS3.

P.S. I know that 360 is cheaper but do not forget Live subscription which cost nearly 30 quid!!!

This will be faster than a 4890, but not really significantly. Talking about 25 percent tops for the 1Gb version. http://www.techspot.com/review/249-ati-radeon-hd-5830/ This puts the 5830 and 50 against the 4890. If you consider the 768mb version of this card to be a tad faster than a 5830 and the 1GB version a tad slower than a 5850 it should give you some rough idea

That's the 1gb version this isn't and this is from ebuyer who in my experience is about the best components place there is there rma process is great when things go wrong and is very fast turnaround.

Of course its cheaper to buy, at least initially. Its games are also more expensive and its nowhere near as fast as a PC with a card like this in it. You get what you pay for and in this case you are getting graphics a good 5 times quicker than what PS3 can knock out. Also, no starcraft 2.....

This is why games on this card look like the top image and games on a PS3 look like the bottom one. http://i731.photobucket.com/albums/ww320/VulcanProject/CryEngineComparison.jpg

Why? Recommended is a quad core (no doubt referring to the very common three and a half year old Q6660) and a 9800GTX (bout 80 quids worth of graphics) a GTX460 is twice as fast as that recommended card.

What you appear to be fretting over is the physx and apex (its physx applied to clothing/models basically) settings. Turning all this up will result in a kick in the balls for even a fast card. You hardly need to turn it to maximum to get amazing looking visuals, and certainly wont need it on to trounce the console versions visually. a 1GB 460 here is as fast as a 470- Which is the recommended card for medium physx and apex. You will be able to turn on a LOT of fancy physx eyecandy with this thing on mafia 2 no doubt.

Ati only users cant even activate those features. At least with this nvidia card you can enjoy them. I can assure you now after seeing shots of this game, the gap between the console version and the Pc version on a card like this is going to be pretty enormous.

You missed the recommended settings for high detail then presumably. My point is obvious. Why buy a GTX 460 when it's below the requirement for high detail using at least a 9800GTX for Physx. I know you can get a decent amount of detail from using a GTX 460 but some one can see my point no? Anyway a GTX 460 is a very decent card, I've been looking for the past few days at forum review/opinions etc. So I'm not saying don't buy this card because of one game.

Anyway on a more serious note :) Two GTX 460 1GB in SLI will be more than enough :P

The GTX 460 is a good card to start off with and SLI up later when you have the funds etc if needed. I'd pay a bit more and go for the 1GB version if you plan on SLI later.

A cheaper price from Eclipse. Generic version from Nvidia

#29
I'd consider getting the 1gb version if you're playing games at 1920x1080 (or higher) resolution, the extra memory will help in the long run.

Edit: Doh, beaten by Airan! I got the info from the same link as well ;)
#30
This is definitely a decent card it will beat the 5830 which has fortunately dropped in price. The 5850 has to drop now. It took Nvidia 6 months to come up with something to trounce ATI and they brought out the GTX 470 and 480. Not good enough in the time frame, however at least there's competition now and the GTX 460 will definitely help to drop prices of ATI cards.

Can't say I'm a massive fan of ocuk. Their customer service leaves a lot to be desired but I have found this, I guess the shipping cost messes things up though sadly >

No i think you just missed the point clearly and didnt quite read the specs properly. Those specifications are for high PHYSX and APEX. Physx is an nvidia only enhancement for the physics engine of the game and character clothing. NOT high details as in texture settings, shaders, particles, anti aliasing etc. I will repeat myself, those are nvidia only features for the highly complex physics model. Recommended specifications without physx enabled is a mere 9800GTX......

Read properly and see for absolute maximum Physx acceleration the game wants a dedicated GTX285, just for physx!!

''Video Cards and resolution: APEX medium settings
Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (or better) for Graphics and a dedicated NVIDIA 9800GTX (or better) for PhysX
Recommended: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 (or better) '' as in- a GTX470 on its own and no dedicated physx card

You can turn physx/apex to medium on this card, recommending a 470 (this as i say again, is as fast) Neither console will have remotely advanced physics as this running ''medium'' physx settings. Doesnt even work on Ati cards. Go look at Batman Arkham Asylum with physx only on medium. Its a huge enhancement over the standard version.

When a game suggests you to buy a 450 pound card and 150 pounds worth of card dedicated to physx, to enable maximum physx instead of just medium, you know that its a rip off. GTX 460 1GB will do one step down from maximum physx for under 200 quid. If you want to spend another 400 just so you can turn physx to ''high'' instead of medium, i suggest you see a psychiatrist
#32
I'd have said the flawed logic was to be suckered in completely on a performace per £ basis. At some stages require x power to be playable. That means although more expensive in performance per £ some cards are better value for money because the extra power can make a difference between a game being playable or dropping enough fram rates to render it unenjoyable, which is a total waste of money.

While I totally agree with your statement I'd say that it's not relevant in this situation. Looking at the benchmarks there is no game where the slight increase on the 1gb version makes it playable or not over the 768mb version.

I already saw one, he said it was a mistake to get the GTX 460 768MB, so I didn't. That's why I'm getting the 5850 when it drops in price or maybe a 5870, you can wait too long on these things though.

999tigger
I thought the power consumption of the 4890 was less than a 4870?


He was comparing the 5770 (DX11) to his 4890 (DX10), the newer cards are suppose to consume less power than the older ones, a step in the right direction. Atm it's probably better to stick with the older cards if power consumption isn't a concern and they're still outperforming what would be in your card budget. As far as I know there aren't many DX11 games available anyways, if any.

What are the Nvidia cards like for power consumption btw?

The Femri 4 series are pretty crap for power consumption and heat, I'd still take the ATI 5 series over them.

The 460 is completely redesigned silicon so power consumption and heat are just fine now, hence why they overclock so well.

Considering that the 1GB version at reference clocks is still a lot cheaper than a 5850 and very nearly as fast, yet overclocks better, its probably a better deal. You can find factory overclocked cards for a little more, still less than a 5850, and they are generally faster. Both these models of 460 are the best value for your money in between the 150-210 pound segment. I would most certainly pick up a factory overclocked 1GB 460 for 200 pounds than a 5850 at current prices, which seem to have ballooned well over 220.


The cheapest 5850s are £208 (Aria) or £210 (Tekheads), inc carriage; and they've also shown to overclock well (5870 territory).

The 768MB 460 would seem to be a bargain at £150 since it outperforms the 5830 quite easily.

Why would you prefer a 1GB 460 to a 5850 when budgeting up to £210? The latter outperforms it in most benchmarks (both on stock clocks; is hardly fair to compare a clocked 460 to an unclocked 5850 now is it, when they both clock equally well?)
#40
Ooh, tempted.
Have got a 4850 but have recently bought a Nvidia compatible 3D projector, so need an Nvidia card and an Nvidia vision kit to start playing in 3D.
Projector is only 720p, so this GPU should knock every game out the park in 3d.
