Received Free Gbyte 4890 OC, what to do? - Page 3

post #21 of 40

I don't know about those results, the GTX280 is a far better overclocker for one. Secondly, my GTX280 was so much better than a 4870 most of the time that it wasn't even funny. I sold a 4870x2 to keep my 280. Based on my experience those cards aren't even in the same league.

My one friend has a 7850 Vapor X and its amazing. Plays BF3 nicely on high (no aa) and overclocks so nicely.

Would be polite to ask him first i think.

I'm with this, "finding a home for it" isn't flogging it and getting a free upgrade, it's giving it away to someone in need teaching.gif

well normally I refurbish PC's and donate to shelters and such, but I dont have a PC for this to go into, and it is a bit high end for a shelter. I wont have access to a decent enough Powersupply to run it.

now if this was an OCN Freebie giveaway that I won, then you better believe that I wouldnt be doing anything like contemplating selling it.. Just that I know I built that Freebie e2200 and 4770 rig for my friend but hes homeless, so I helped him trade the PC for a half Decent Laptop so he can work on his art while logged into library WiFi. Desktop pretty useless if you cannot plug it into the tree that you sleep under lol

the boss said do whatever I want with it, but I doubt I will find a use for it myself, and honestly I could use the cash or the upgrade. eitherway my Morals say im in the clear.

is there anything that this card is better at than my GTX 275 or wifes sli 9800's? like specific games? etc.

Honestly, if you can use the money for the family, choose that option. If you can still play games with some decent FPS, then its not worth the hassle to upgrade. Make the right decision and make everyone happy. tongue.gif
