I switch from many years of ATI to Nvidia recently (the EVGA 770 4GB....may go dual soon) since I upgraded my monitor and needed something to drive it.

I was tired of all the ATI problems with drivers and CCC. It has been good for me and I haven't had any driver issues, but then again EVGA's support has been great and I can run multiple firmwares on the card.

I have 5 PCs currently and only one Nvidia card. I still am having many problems with ATI drivers but maybe that has changed with the newer cards. I was on the ATI team for years but now it really doesn't matter to me.

I think there tends to be a lot of lower end ATI cards out there and people buy them to save cash and then end up in a world of problems. You can probably buy either as long as you stick with a quality manufacturer who will support you when you need it.

My integrated graphics are probably better than a 4870. Do you have an old CPU?

grab a pair of 280x's from Ebay if your PSU can support it.

Should be under $400 and will obviously outperform a 870.

An HD 4850 is all I've got. Honestly, this little card keeps trucking along pretty well. I've got at least 2 games on Steam whose "minimum specs" demand a higher-end card, but it gives no ****s and plays them just fine anyways. I'm planning on keeping it around until late 2015 at least, before I upgrade. That'll be a solid 7 years of service from one card, and that ain't bad.

I only have a single slot for a GPU so dual card configs don't work for me.
