It's really all I can afford right now, If this at all. I do like the spec's on it tho. If you have any suggestion, it would be greatly appreciated...
It's a nice choice, good price/performance and dubble lifetime warranty when registered, I say go for it if you want too uppgrade and have the money for it

Ok, finally got the front grill cut out. Also removed the hd bay. Thinking that it will improve air flow in the case. Will upload pics later as wifey is doing 3 papers this weekend fir school, including 1 20 page, 1 10 page and 1 5 page paper. Trying ti motivate her as she still has a 4.0 gpa a year into her masters program

Don't pay the extra money. None of the 5770s will overclock much over 1050/1450 anyway without water and it's iffy then. So get one for 169 and OC to the XXX specs. The way I figure you're paying a dollar per mhz over the standard XFX 5770. Why not do it for free?
All right.. Very cool.

It's funny u say that Rocker. I see it the same way. The difference in MHZ compared to each other isn't much. (I also looked at some of the posts you guys had up helping General 'E' make a decision.) Comes down to a Dollar point tho. I hear ya..
I was just telling my wife to look at a comparison link. She said: look, you'll be paying more for what, a little more power! ((What does she know. But she's right,LOL.)) By the way honey, No; you cant get it.. LOL hahaha..Right..
It's coming anyway. ( she don't know about the little extra Computer Tech money. She thinks I do all my friends Favors.. LOL) Well, I do. But when a HD crash's and I have to sit there for a few hour installing an HD & re-installing windows & getting it all back to spec. Well, I could be using that time for my self.. anyways Rocker! Thanks Brother.

Thanks for the response Mlbrottarn. Yeah, that dubble Lifetime W.; I like that to but I still wasn't sure on the performace compaired to the price.
Yeah, I just bought this HIS: H-4670-QS1GH but I want something with a little more kick.. Even though I'm getting great FPS from most of my games I play.
Thanks guys.. needed that narrowing on my point of choice...

Just in case anyone was wondering about the performance of the new Fermi cards compared to ATI and even the old Nvidia cards, here is a link:
http://www.evga.com/forums/fb.ashx?m=259336

Me, I'm going to wait. They are going to come out with more than just two versions, XFX doesn't have any, even for pre-order and usually in the first month after release the drivers change at least 10 times. When they settle down and get some in stock they might come down a little in price too. I can afford 2 480's right now but I'll wait & see.

Edit, did this already & it disappeared so if it's here twice you know why. Here is a hands on test of power use and noise levels of both Nvidia and ATI.

Oh damn guys ... I feel that upgrade itch coming on and now I've got my sites set on a 120GB Vertex. It started when I was learning some Adobe Premiere Pro and realized I didn't have the whole CS4 package installed because of space constraints on my current 60GB Vertex ... so you know how that goes. First it's just a "hmmm that would be nice" ... to "lets just do some price comparisons purely out of curiosity" ... to "ok how do I hide this from She Who Must Be Obeyed??" lols

These things are popping up like STD's. In a few days everyone will have a review or two.

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3783

The first to post was a UK site and they kept getting knocked off the web because of the flood.
The general opinion over at Evga is they're too hot and take too much power. This is the opinion of the people who do folding though. I haven't read much of what the gamers say, probably because they won't even ship for at least 2 more weeks.

yea i dont think i really care for the power usage of the 8-pin on a video card.... it seems like a bit much to me but meh i have been out of the GPU game for a while so i honestly have no idea what is normal any more

can they run DX11? (distracted by a baby dont really feel like looking it up XD)
