Yeah me too, which is why I know I'll be buying the most expensive version of the (hopefully soon to be released) Fermi cards. Also I believe in Future proofing, I went 5 years without a single computer upgrade and man did I miss a lot but if this is my last build it's going to be all out. I will have the latest graphics and I've already got the money reserved for a core i-9 but after that I may seek gaming retirement. From what the magazines are saying we may have more to worry about from the next version of Xbox than from our own PC's.
For Enigma though he may not need all the power of 1440 shader cores.

Oh, I can't tell you why, well I can, the why is humans are constantly trying to out do themselves. The reason they keep trying to improve coolers, be they air or water is to get the lightest, smoothest installing, best performing piece of equipment they can with the materials on hand. When I started computing, the most a system had was a fan in the case, then fins on the cpu, then the fins turned aluminum, then copper, then fins with a fan on them. Get the idea, as long as we can make it better stronger, faster, smaller, we will.


Hey Bri..
Fermi and Yetti.. Same thing man.. They are legends.

In all honesty, I've falling out of speed with what video cards are doing lately. I wouldn't know what to recommend based on your needs of being 'Green'. I didn't know Eco-friendly & Rig's owned by Scouts mixed.

You seem to have already done your research, so I am going to say its safe to assume, E, that you already know too much for anyone to give you additional technical information.

I say, list your top choices, followed by the biggest Pro & Con for each, and we'll vote.

I honestly think you have your mind made up already, but if it helps, we're here for you buddy.

It not frames FPS that I am looking for.. I know that already. I know that 2 5770s is almost equal to a 5890 and 2 5850 are like forget it.. Im talking power green vs Horse power... I know they are both killer cards ... Thats why i cant deside. come on guys ... Advise me..

My computer stays on alot and the 4870 X2 was making Southern Company FAT. Big Power bills..
Ok, I get it. Well you know it starts with an 80+ silver or gold PSU, if you can't that. No, what you can get is the video card right? So I can't tell you exactly what to get but this can help, I rely on these guys for a lot of what I tranfer into type on this forum:
http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fea...rmance_preview
BTW, I am by no means suggesting you get a 5830, I think they're piddling in a giant pond but the chart on this review could help you decide how much power you can pull without paying the power company.
I have an APC UPS and the software that goes with it, so I can tell you my system on idle runs 259 watts, the monitor is 120W by itself, it's 1920X1080 Samsung, what they call a TN panel. I can force my video card into 99% power up by folding and I run. Just have to say WOW, that's the only time I've actually watched it load up, it's pulling 389 watts but I know when it warms up and the fan on the 5870 runs at 40% the whole system will pull 411Watts.
What's interesting is Nvidia says it's GF100 will idle at close to 17 watts but the GF 480 at full bore may take over 300watts. That's a lot of juice!
I hope that helps at least a little.

Coffee wore off, talk more tomorrow, I'm off all day.

I looked at making a false floor for the case using a really old PC casing(you know, the ones that where one part slide offs). Really would have been easy as the right angle is already there
But now after my last wire tidy session, there is nothing to hide down there

Here's one for your cammo pattern, Enigma...




Looks like he's doing a side panel for a computer... At the end it looks like he has a mouse all done up too....

E, go with the XFX 5770. Lifetime modder friendly warranty and it won't break the bank. $159.99 on Newegg right now which is 20 bucks cheaper than what I paid (DAMNIT!) vs the 5850 for $180 more! I really don't think that $180 justifies the video quality improvement. I've been mulling over getting another 5770 for Xfire or waiting till next year and pulling the trigger on a 5970, since with my MOBO it'll fit with no case mods, when the price and availability are better. To me anything over $400 for a video is not sensible for my budget anyway, so in the end I'll probably go for another 5770 and xfire. Go with the 5770.
