GTS480 or 560ti 448?
I am currently building a i7 2600k with Z68 Motherboard 8GB Ram and all that jazz. I would go for the i5 2500k but I also use the PC for 3d and video editing, but I also want to be able to play games. Or do you guys think the i5 would be better, I am not sure how much of a difference hyper threading makes.
My main problem is that I am not sure which video card I should get.
I first thought 2 older SLI/CrossfireX, but then I thought that it costs more to upgrade later on, because I need to replace 2 cards instead of upgrading to SLI/CrossfireX then.
I saw on Newegg that the EVGA GTX480 only costs $250 and most tests show that it's faster than the 560ti 448 ($300).
But I am not a pro here at all and the last rig I built was in 2006.
Will the GTX480 still be for sale in about a year or if I get this one I pass on a future SLI upgrade?
Is there a Radeon option that would be better? I am 50/50 between Geforce and Radeon, no preference at all.
In sum, which video card would be the best option I don't want to spend a lot more than $300 especially because they evolve so fast, I rather upgrade in a shorter period of time.
