Which 5770 would be the best match for my 5770 Hawk?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I dont want to get another Hawk because they havent lowered in price at all and it seems ridiculous ($189.99 CAD).

What other 5770 would be a good match in terms of cooling and OC to a Hawk?

Gigabyte SuperOverclock? Sapphire Vapor-X?

I can get a used Vapor-X for about $120 CAD or a new Gigabyte SO for $140 CAD with $20 rebate or what other brand do you recommend?

Can you just sell your card and get a 6950-6970 or a GTX 570 instead?

I think almost any 5770 will get 950 core clocks and remain quiet. I have a Sapphire Vapor-X 5770 in another rig and I'm very happy with it.

I put an ad on craigslist but no replies and I can't sell here since I don't have enough rep.

I put it up for $160 since its still $190 + tax and shipping leave it at about $230

I use Kijiji.ca to sell my gear. Seems to be more scammers on Craigslist. Also make sure you take an actual pic of the card, that helps alot too.

Yeah $160 sounds right and then give a deal for $150 when some asks so they feel they've made a great bargain.

So if I can't sell my 5770 and I don't want to just buy a whole new card and leave my 5770 collecting dust. Is that Gigabyte a good match?

I think that card will work perfectly fine, except like Short stated I'd rather sell the Hawk now and invest in a 6950 and above. You can always try Ebay(Usually how most of my stuff gets sold, I sold my 5770 back in March for 127 USD), and Amazon and etc to sell your stuff, I honestly believe if you wait you're going to be really happy with your new purchase because you'll be granted about double if not more in a performance increase by getting 6950/70 or 470/570.
