Re: Need Help Deciding Between Two Configs (AMD vs Intel)

To be honest I think it's be much safer to be using a 500 - 550W minimum PSU if you're gonna be running that card.

Re: Putting together a new computer Please help

Be prepared to RMA that graphics card, though I'm not sure if the issue applies to 4870s, or is only for 4890s. I got a 4890 Vapor-X a few weeks ago, got one from a faulty batch. Fan spins to 100% when I boot up the computer and fails to send any signal to the monitors. Multiple reboots later the sy...

Re: Looking for build advice: inexpensive gaming desktop

Most benchmarks I've seen have shown the Radeon HD 4890 1GB on par with the GTX 275 or just over or under the performance of the GTX 275. Imo the radeon 4890 is a better deal but thats only cause I'm about to buy one and I guess I'm biased :P
