Ok,
I was looking at some more a little more expensive graphic cards and the thing I found was:
GAINWARD GeForce GTX 460 GS - 1024 MB GDDR5
SPARKLE GeForce GTX 465 - 1 GB GDDR5
(both at 230€)

Is it worth the extra buck compared to a GTW460 with 768MB and compared to the HD5830 (1GB) ?

And also, since both cost the same, is the 465 much better than the 460 ?

Thanks !

465 is actually on par with 460 1gb model; blame nvidia model naming for that, in my humble opinion avoid 465,

regarding GTX 460 768 / 1gb and HD5830 you will get diminishing return in performance compared to extra € spend. in my humble opinion I would go for GTX 460 1Gb to be most future proof.

from: http://techpowerup.com/reviews/Axle/...768_MB/31.html
gaming at 1920x1200,

Radeon HD 5830: 94%
Geforce GTX 460 768: 100%
Geforce GTX 460 1024: 108%

so 460 1Gb is 8% faster compared to 768Mb, but costs 21% more
460 768Mb is 6% faster compared to HD 5830, costs ~11% more

best bang for the buck HD 5830 at €170, no beating that.

@jmke

Thanks ! I am pretty sure I'm going for a 460GTX 768mb :P

Though now I was looking for a SSD, and my brother says intel SSD's are the best in pretty much every way, though they cost a lot too :P
Any advice on that ?

Thanks !

Ok, what I currently have for a pc:
Graphics: 186€
GAINWARD GeForce GTX 460 - 768 MB GDDR5
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/6166500...768-mb-gd.html
(I went with the GTX 460 since it's a little better, and I kind of like nVidia more than ATI xD)

CPU: 265€ (i7) / 192€ (i5)
INTEL Core i7-860 - 2,8 GHz - Cache L3 8 MB - Socket LGA 1156
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/6009324...ghz-cache.html
or maybe
INTEL Core i5-750 - 2,66 GHz - Cache L3 8 Mo - Socket LGA 1156
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/6009326...-ghz-cach.html
though I prefer the i7 since I'm planning to use the computer for 3D software and programming (I'm a DAE-student, it's a game development school so )
Though not sure it's worth the extra buck ? I could use it, but maybe it's overkill ?


Ram: 110€ /4GB
CORSAIR XMS3 - Geheugen - 4 GB ( 2 x 2 GB )
or 8GB of the same if I find the money
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/3708864...-gb-2-x-2.html

Motherboard: 115€
ASUS P7P55D - Socket 1156 - Chipset P55 Express - ATX
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/3492815...56-chipse.html

Power: 67€
OCZ StealthXstream II PC-voeding 600 W
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/5955067...i-pc-voed.html

HDD: 90€
WESTERN DIGITAL WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX harde schijf - 1 TB - intern - 3.5" - SATA-600 - 7200 tpm -buffer: 64 MB
http://www.pixmania.be/be/nl/5041462...wd1002fae.html
Not a SDD for now, maybe later as an upgrade, but I just can't affort it right now


Seems ok ?

Thanks a lot for all the help, tips and information !

You could go for the i5 750 easy (and if you save this amount of money because you buy the 750 instead of the 860, you could go for the 460 1GB version)
