Need opinions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hiyo everyone. I have found a great cheap price from a local buddy of mine to buy a sapphire 5870 Vapor-X. All he had was the 2gb cards tho and I asked him "Would it be better for performance than the 1 gb card". He told me that if you're not using it for 3 monitors or whatever, you may lose performance and get problems. He saw a benchmarked that showed it. Is this true? I am only using one monitor for this card.. Thanks

I do play crysis warhead, mmorpg's, GTA 4, and modern warfare 2 all on high settings, highest res and AA if I can handle it. I wanted 5870 because it has higher core clock/memory of course than the older ones. That'll be great if there'll be no issues running it under one monitor...

Bumpy. If there's no performance hit then I'll go buy it today
