    With the extra cooling you might get the core to nearly a gig?

    That I believe is based off the basic 4890. There are few different versions of like 750core, 775core, 800core, 850core, 900core and the vapor x which is 950core.

    not sure bout the 750 core but the rest are right.

    All true, I just find GTX 275 superior to the ATI's best.

    Why do you want superclocked GPU? :rolleyes: GTX 295 is 30% faster (than GTX 275) with its GPU clocked at 576 Mhz only. :eek:

    True kemical, and a good idea to get the waterblock too. :) Sure it is a good idea to get it higher clocked for the same money, if so. And if it's not actually preoverclocked by the manufacturer. I just know in quite a few cases the overclocked GPUs make no difference at all.

    Awesome replies, great review post link!

    yea only thing i see stopping the 4890 be is the stock cooling :/, that'll get ripped off nehow :), with my current card with no oc's its impossible to play cod4MP, with it oced to where its at I was & able to try 800x600 @mp, received ok results, its playable :). Yea if the price is to high for the black edition i'll probly stick with the xfx XXX.

    Great finds man.

    Results are close sphew.

    ATI 4890 256-bit < GTX 275 440-bit < GTX 295 880-bit

    Memory Bus Width is the factor really. :)

    Thanks guys for your advice. I actually found updated drivers on the asus website. Uninstalled the old drivers installed the new. The graphics score has gone up to 6.5 and the overall PC score to 6.2 which reflects the speed of my raid hard drive.
    Any comments welcome
    I will try your benchmarks epk1950.
