Replace GTX295 with... ATI 5850 cF? ehhe

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well i'm thinking on replacing my GTX295. It's watercooled and working @ 700/1200/1509.

I really want to spend less than 500 Euros, but at the same time, the time span of my GTX295 was 2 years, what's great!

So the possibilities are:

Premium/High price
- GTX 580 with EK waterblock ...

Premium/medium price
- GTX 570 with EK waterblock
- ATI 6970 with EK waterblock

More cost effective
- ATI 6950 with EK waterblock

The most cost effective!

- Powercolor 5850 PCS+ Crossfire. I have 1, so i just need to buy the second one, and i check the prices, and seemed pretty good


This last one, i have a 5850PCS+ just laying here, not being used... and i thought that could be a good plan too

NO NO NO. Xfire drivers are utter crap and always have issue. Just dumped 6870's for a single 570.

This...

I just swapped out 2 5850's for the 580. I was having a lot of problems with the 5850's, and not one problem since I put in the 580. Now to get rid of these paperweights.
