We got word late yesterday by a friend at NVIDIA that Best Buy had slipped up and released NVIDIA branded graphics cards on Sunday night. This is the first time that we have seen NVIDIA branded video cards being sold direct and we went to a few Best Buy stores in St. Louis and sure enough, we spotted the cards sitting on store shelves. We couldn’t leave the store empty handed, so we bought the card for $299.99 and headed back to see what it was all about.
Did you know that NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 and ATI Radeon HD 5770 video cards are nearly identical in price?

The question we look at today is which setup performs better and which one scales better?
The ECS Black GeForce GTX 460 graphics card comes with 336 CUDA cores that are factory overclocked to 765MHz on the core clock, which is way up from the 675MHz used on the NVIDIA reference design.

If you are looking at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 series you might want to look at one of these!

Luckily, ATI has a number of DirectX 11 video cards below the $200 price margin, and today we are looking at a reference Radeon HD 5770 from XFX that costs just $165.
