5770 XFIRE or 6870

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Should I get another 5770 or a 6870. The most graphic intensive game I play atm is Battlefield Bad Company 2.

5770 cf beat a 5870 (at least in my benches that i ran on my last rig), so yeah, id grab another 5770.

if you however like the cleaner look and and more base power go for a 6870, personally wouldnt do it tho.

If you get a 6870 don't and get a 6850 and flash the BIOS as it is the SAME EXACT CARD with a bios flash.
Ahh!

I just wish I could find another HIS 5770 v2, the egg cooler, I feel weird having mismatched cards

Thats the issue when you leave it too long. I think you should sell your 5770, and buy 2 6850's. It will out perform any single card GPU out there including a GTX 570 or HD5970.

hmmm, hes spending ~ 120 bucks tops for a second 5770, i dont think that matches your idea here, spending ~ $ 360 / 180 each and maybe getting 100 for his card... leaving him up to spending 260 out of his pocket, just an assumption tho

thats why you pay via paypal, and your covered, if they dont advertise that its broken, your pretty much safe

otherwise if you need matching cards, sell yours somewhere for a decent price, and grab 2 of the same ones.

Yikes, buy quad GTX580's instead.

Definitely sell the 5770 and get a 6850. They are great cards.
