So I'm getting a new computer. I've used an ati gfx card for the last few years (x1600 mobility). I have no problem using ati or nvidia. I am far from a fanboy either way. I have been leaning towards a 5850 for a long time now (got a build coming up soon as i cash tax return check). now that specs are out.. 470 seems to be 50$ more expensive (depending on the model of 5850) for a few frames more. I have been debating this every since I read a review of 470. The 5850 seems to be the better deal, however, I am wondering if once 470 gets better drivers the performance will increase more. Atm I 'm having trouble justifying paying the extra 50$. Idealistically I will be xfiring or sli'ing a few months after I get the card either way.
