Is this graphics card just not good enough - Page 2

post #11 of 38
Well depending on what kind of games you play, it could be good enough for you. I would have maybe gotten a 6850 or 6870 personally. Not too much more expensive. You could always return it and get a better one since it hasn't been 30 days.

The 5770 is a good card. For moderate gaming, HD movies, etc. this card is suited, but the 6950's/6970's are in a different league. The 5770 certainly won't be playing the most GPU-intensive games (aka Crysis/Metro 2033) at max settings (and high resolution) with 60 fps, but tone a few settings down and you'll still be able to enjoy those games at a decent frame rate.

Now if you're picky about details and want games running full blast at playable frame-rates (like me), then you might want a different card.

Thank you everyone. One question. I don't have the box it came in, or the antistatic bag it came in. How do I send it back? and what do I need to send it back with?

That could definitely be a problem. I think most places require the box at least.

well...... I have the slightly better the 5830 , and i have to say that it performs GREAT even at max but surely i get low fps but since i ran everthing max at 1920 i think your card will perform good if you let down some settings and res , Or you need to coinsidrr getting a 69## or 5## card

I got my XFX 5770 a few months ago for $90, I still think at that price it was a rip and I could have done A LOT better at $140. Seriously consider returning it and paying an extra bit of money for something like a 6850. The 5770 decent card but for that price its really not worth it by today's standards.

I think newegg will be understanding then. Tell them you would like to return it... Do you have any anti static bags from other parts of your computer? like your motherboard or something? As far as im aware Newegg are very good with customer service and returns.

I would definately try and return it for a gtx 460 or something. The reviews for it are awesome yes, but you should check the review dates. The 5770 is a yesterdays card (but so is the 460), so the reviews are from the yesterday era, where they didnt have todays cards too compare it too, hence a lot less competition. When it first came out it was a sweet card.

How did you manage too lose the box and static wrap when youve had it for 10 days?

See if you can get something like this.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130591

looks like its roughly 25% more powerful, but im pretty sure a gtx 460 overclocks a lot nicer than a 5770 so you could make that a ~30%

not sure if serious....a 5770 is about equal to a 4870, and crossfire 5770 would be ahead of crossfire 4870
