Nvidia or Radeon?

I'm in the case of buying a new gaming graphics card next month, but I'm unsure which one of the brands I should go for this time. I've always been a Nvidia guy until now, and some of the Radeon cards looks pretty nice.
Basically I want the best for my money. My budget will be somewhat between 300$ - 400$. I've already checked a few charts at Toms Hardware, but it doesn't really seem to describe what to go for this time.

Anyone got some advice?

Re: Nvidia or Radeon?

First off some questions. What do you have currently? And what kind of intensive gaming are you doing that you need a $300+ card?

You can run nearly everything for a card in the $150-200 range, from my experience.

Re: Nvidia or Radeon?

I'm currently using a Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 in combination with an Intel E8400 @ standard clock and 4 GB DDR2 RAM. Tomorrow I'll receive the main parts to my new rig consisting of an Intel Core i5 2500K, Gigabyte GA-Z68P-DS3 and 8 GB DDR3 RAM. I'm pretty much aiming to play all the new titles including Battlefield 3, Serious Sam 3, Stronghold 3 etc. etc.

You've to consider the fact that everything is a lot more expensive in Denmark compared to the US. Hardware is pretty overpriced here. Anyway I'm considering to buy a Radeon 6870, unless you got something interesting of course? tongue

Ah, I didnt think of regional differences in price. I've always been an Nvidia user. I am currently using a GTX 460.

Re: Nvidia or Radeon?

I believe the choice eventually will be between the 560 Ti or the 6850/6870 depending on what my bank tells me in September. tongue
