Would a 5770 for 2 4870's be a good deal? - Page 2

post #11 of 43
If you have enough PSU to push them, and DX11 isn't important to you, and if you're willing to deal with any Xfire issues that might arise, and since you don't fold, I don't see why not. Personally I'd keep with the newer 5770 rather than risking having to get a new PSU to downgrade to two cards that would only outperform my current card in DX10 games.

No direct X 11, if you need it. More power consumption and more heat. 1 hd 4870 ~ 1 hd 5770, but you can get another 5770 for dirt cheap around about now. Crossfiring 2 HD 5770's would be much nicer, and 2 HD 5770's > 2 HD 4870's

Hes doubling up performance by trading a 5770?

Why is it not worth it?

EDIT:

I am officially confused why 2 4870s in CF cant beat a 5770?
Wouldnt 2 4870s be somewhere closer to a 5870 in performance?
My thoughts exactly. 2 years when I was choosing a video card, I've seem numerous benchmarks showing a high 4870 performance.

I don't know what people are talking about here...pretty sure 4870 in CF would be better than a single 5770. If your willing to sacrifice DX11 and more power consumption it'd be worth it. If not then keep your 5770.

Tbh I have no use for it at all. The second rig I would build with the 4870's would also really not serve a purpose. I sold the 5770 on eBay but the guy asked for a refund because he didn't like what the cooler on the card looked like. He didn't even install it.

So I got it back today, and I tested it and it works fine. I just have nothing at all to do with it. I gave that guy a damn good deal too, $80 for it and it wasn't even used that much.

How much do 4870's sell for on eBay?

Anandtech didn't have a 4870 CFX option, but heres the 4870x2 vs a single 5770.

But if you got the power to run it and don't care about DX11, then its fine. Seeing as you have a 6870, then I'm guessing this is for a guest computer or whatnot. For a guest computer you really can't go wrong with that setup as long as you have the equipment to push the 2 4870s. You would probably get around 70 or whatnot for a 4870 on ebay.

Someone bought something on EBAY and didnt like the cooler on it and wanted a refund!? Some people, I would have been like sorry dude. Unless i mislead him. Bottom line is HD 5770 and 4870 are very similar in performance. 2 5770's would scale much better though making cross fired 5770's better. Like mentioned before, no Direct X 11 needed, and power consumption and heat arent an issue, do the trade. Lets put it this way, you will be getting way more value if you make the trade. Im guessing 5770's are selling for around 85-95 used and 4870's for around 70-80.

I agree, id do it in a heart beat, they are faster than a single HD6870 by far.

5770's in CrossfireX > 4870's in CrossfireX, if you can consider that.
The 5770's scale much better and run DX11, they actually match and/or beat a 5870 in every game.
