Specs: Microsoft Windows xp, 2.017 GHz / 479 MB
This is just a question I have not been able to answer myself. Which is better the GTX 480 or the Radeon 5970. All i know is that the 5970 has more Video memory but I do believe the the gtx has PhysX and Im not sure about it. So what do you guys think?

These cards aren't even in the same class. The 5970 is essentially 2 5870's in crossfire mode on the same PCB. It's not even remotely fair to compare the GTX 480 to the 5970, if you want to compare the two, compare 2x GTX 480's in SLI mode vs 1 5970. The 5970 almost costs as much as 2 GTX 480's anyway.

Unless something new has been released, the Radeon HD 5970 is the fastest card currently available. $650 is a hell of a lot to pay for a card though. And if you don't have a decent high end power supply, you'll probably wanna get one to protect your video card investement.

yeah hd 5970 is fastest video card on earth but two 460gtx will humiliate both hd 5970 and 480gtx.

I agree with kuwese. You can buy a pair of 1GB GTX 460s for around $450. Such a setup would easily outperform the $500 GTX 480, and would even beat the $650 HD5970.

Heck, if my rig had a quad-core CPU, I would so install a second 460.
