Thread: Which gfx card: Nividia 8800 GT(X) or ATI HD4850?

  1. #41


    perhaps one of you guys with a 4870 (claiming that fglrx works well) could post your xorg.
    i have a 4870, and performance is terrible (worse than my laptop's onboard intel!)

    In all honesty, never buy something trusting on future performance or development, so the better card now is the Nvidia.

    Drivers easy to install,
    good video/opengl/wine performance,
    less power needed and heat generated,
    cheaper price...

    Yeah, I know Nvidia cards have their share of problems too, like all hardware, but is not a pain like Ati cards.
