HD5770 vs GeForce460

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I was wondering which one would be a better idea? The 4770 is about 30 bucks cheaper, has more clock, and thus later if I got a board that did crossfire, I could have two cheaper cards running...easier than two more expensive ones.

460 is better in both single card and SLi

Atleast the 1 GB version is

Here's the comparison chart...for the two ideal cards I'm talking about.

Welcome to OC,

What are your needs for gaming? what games? Newer ones or?

I have the 5770, it's awesome, for my needs. It does dandy, however that's mine. I will be crossfiring/6x lcd outputting them later, but again that's myself.

If you want more gaming, try the 460's as I hear most of them do circles around my card. But what are your system specs etc?

This would be on a system with 4GB DDR3 Ram, Likely a Foxxcon motherboard (Crossfire support), and the undecided Athlon II X4 3.2(ish) or Phenom II X4 3.2(ish) (not sure which to go with...big price difference ) and then the card. The 5770 has price, and not only that but the CF option later on if I needed to get better performance, I would need a different Motherboard for 2x 460's and that board will probably be 40-60 dollars more than this foxxconn I'm looking at, and also the price in the cards too (roughly $30 more) would make that system a bit more pricey...I don't know what to do if I am going to benefit from getting the single 460 now, and not having the ability to run 2 of them down the road (year or two), then let me know.

If you haven't gotten motherboard yet, you can go SLI route as well. Or even if you got a crossfire board, there is a simple trick to SLI on it.

Look for charts and see the difference. That may help you decide if the $30 is worth it.

For the Phenom vs Athlon decision, you'll need to see what apps and games you play, find benchmarks and decide if what you use actually benefit from the L3 cache memory or not. Then decide if the extra cost is worth it.
