Should I return HD 5970 - Page 3

post #21 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hmm so is it worth returning, or should I sell it. or keep it...

If i were to sell it, would the person i sold it to be able to get the life time visiontek warranty?

I was thinking of selling it while i can still get a decent price off of it and getting 6950 xfire. since it has better tessellation

don't know about the warranty, but you are pretty much guaranteed to get at least $550 out of it if not more

good enough for me then, if i can et around 550, i will be able to get 2 6950s which will be good for some time. I would like the reciepient to get warranty but I don't think its possible, looking at Visionteks policy, they need a legit proof of purchase from a vendor.

How much money would I pay ebay?

I would say if your unhappy with the card go ahead and sell it. Your going to get a good price for the 5970 atm still because of miners buying up that gen of ATI cards. I would pick up some new cards from either team and be happy with them. You keep saying return it, I don't think you can just return the card after this long just because your not happy about its overclocking ability no matter what kind of warranty it has. Since you said you ran a higher overclock for such a long time and then you may just need more voltage to get the same overclock stable again. Chips do degrade over time and sometimes need more volts to stay the same.

I was going off the fact that it was advertised as 2x5870 underclocked...which was the main reason i bought it in the first place because I had intially last year an AMD build with one PCI-E x16 slot. so I was going to tell them the card is not performing as it should. however it seems like I will sell it along with my old HD 4850. first time for everything

No one.


As for the 5970, I believe, at least I thought this was the case, that it has 2 5850's gpu's on board. 850/1200 are the base clocks of a 5870.
