The long story, I want to give my brother a GPU for his birthday but my budget isnt huge, so im just going to give him my 4850. That would then leave me GPU'less, and therefore need a new one for myself. The choice was either a 5770 or a 4890, Performance wise the 4890 is far superior and i dont play any DX11 games and even if i do, ill be happy at dx10. at least until the HD6xxx series is released, which is when ill replace my 4890 with a 6970(5970 equivalent) or a 6870 (5870 equivalent) and later another. Thats the plan at least, skip the entire 5xxx series. The expected release of the 6 series is around this time next year so its not too long of a wait.
I get about 21.5k with 4850 crossfire. (5500-5600ish cpu score)

That would have been a better choice:S in terms of money.

If its a new version of the 4890 maybe it draws a bit less power than
2x4850.

Just my opinion, I still love you though SysTech <3

@ 3.8ghz I got a 5305 CPU Score. A total 3DMark06 score of 21377.
@ 4.01ghz I got a 5611 CPU Score. A total 3DMark06 score of 22396.

Those are both with Crossfire enabled.

@ 4.01ghz (CF off) I got the same CPU score as before, but a total 3DMark06 score of 17659.

Hmmm...not sure what's going on with that. You DO have the PhysX software installed right?

Are those the 512MB 4850's? Thats the one that i have that i am giving to my bro. I was told that CF 4850's with 512MB RAM is not really worth it. However if it had 1GB RAM...

Try to use Fluid Mark to test only the Physics and see if u get the same error.
Here I have HD5870 + 9600GT working at same time, the 9600GT is dedicated to PhysX.

I didn't know you could have an ATI and an Nvidia card installed in the same board. Learn something new everyday. Of course, physics isn't as important to me as having my other 5770 installed CrossFireX.

I ran my 5850 and 9800GT simultaneously, but I decided the increased power draw wasn't worth it for only 1 game (Cryostasis, still haven't played it). Worked pretty good, I guess, only ran FluidMark a couple times.
post #930 of 1767
Yeah, had no idea. Pretty cool. I seriously doubt that it would do a single good thing for me though. Pretty cool that it works like that though. Anyone have a Radeon 5870 that would give me something to compare with via 3DMark? 06 or Vantage would be fine. It's just that I have heard the 5770's in crossfire are about equal to a 5870.
