    whew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to all Gamers and PC builders/ assemblers out there heres one for us… top 1 best graphic card according to their reviews ASUS EAH 5970 Graphic with the capacity of 2g ddr5 with 4ghz mem.clock speed, suites on my rampage III, see the resolution on CRT it has 2048 x 1536 what more on your HD LCD.. engine clock speed with 725 mhz., it is huge coz it has 11.5" x 5" but when it comes for the performance it superb. this colossal graphic support API DIRECTX 11 which is the latest program in all Graphic Processing Unit, Talking about GPU this graphic cards has Two GPU for better Graphic Application.

    If it was up to me, I’d place the 5850 above the 5870 due to the price factor, but thats me.

    one thing t-break needs to do ..

    add prices!

  • Grim Reaper

    Here are some retail prices
    5970 2250dhs
    GTX 295 1900dhs
    5870 1550dhs
    5850 1000dhs
    gtx 285 1300dhs

    but this seems quite outdated this is how I would rank
    1. Asus Ares 4536dhs (US)
    2.Asus Matrix 2000dhs (US)
    3.Saphire 5870 1550dhs
    4.Ati 5850 1000dhs
    5..GTX480 1999dhs
    Google these cards the first card is extreme and is limited, only 1000 have been manufactured but matrix is the best buy but you've gotta import it from US so my best advice is Aramex Shop and Ship or some Ebay sellers who ship Internationally…if you are looking for an Nvidia card for GPU accelerated stuff then I would reckon you wait till gtx 495 comes out because gtx 480 is just not practical it is a resource hog and perform on the same page as a 5870 just does tessellation better it doesnt run games on full settings that well like crysis.. but it does other things pretty well like video encoding with premiere pro Cs5 and physx…so it all boils down to Nvidia or Ati …Ati has better and faster options but if you looking for those extra stuffs like GPU accelerated stuff you have gtx295 or gtx 480 others dont really stack up that well…
