GTX 285 vs HD5770

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Now I know that the GTX285 has more raw horsepower compared to the HD5770 I currently have. The question is this: Is it worth picking up a used GTX285 for $60 off of craigslist?

The person selling it says they are selling it because they upgraded to a GTX580 to play Skyrim, and they no longer need it. The $60 is for the card, and he is throwing in a set of 3x2GB DDR3 1600 ram modules with it.

Now I know it seems like a no brainer, as I could use the DDR3 towards a future build, and the GTX285 could be used as a semi upgrade from what I got, I just dont know if I should move on it or not.

Tell me what you guys think.

Yes, just make sure the card is fully functional! That's a good deal for a GTX285, I sold mine not too long ago and is still a great performer! Plus you're getting free RAM, and if those are fully functional as well just makes it that much more of a deal! wink.gif

Thats what I was thinking biggrin.gif

The only problem is I would have to take his word for it, I mean, unless I brought my PC with me, I would have no way to verify it actually works. Its a bargain, but it could be a gamble as well.

My guess is that he did a complete upgrade from an X58 to a newer setup, with the way things sound. That would explain the new GPU, the triple channel set of ram, and the sale of a Corsair tx750 and a coolermaster V8.

All together he is trying to sell the GTX285, a Coolermaster V8, the DDR3, and a Corsair TX750 for $110. Seems like a steal to me. But at that price point, it also makes me worry something is wrong with the items.

it's a great deal with the ram, just make sure everything works. a 285 can handle most dx10 games perfectly.
post #5 of 13
Yes, the 285 is better, DX11 aside. A 5770 is barely better than a GTS 450, and that is roughly comparable to a GTX 260.

Just make sure it works smile.gif

Wow... All I have to say is that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I double the sentiment of making sure it's fully functional before you lose your money. Either that or it's stolen... biggrin.gif j/k

If you're meeting up at his house have him put the GTX285 in so you can have him stress it out. Though that's always iffy as it is craigslist tongue.gif

Actually, I would be throwing the HD5770 in my HTPC as it will consume less power, run cooler and perform better than the 8800gt I have in there now. Plus it has an HDMI port for when I get a flatscreen LCD in the future. It will save me from having to buy a new video card for my HTPC (which I had plans to do).
