post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
HD 5970 is technically better, but should additional money be paid for this?

Instead of spamming, you may want to answer the question?

I asked if the additional cost that needs to be paid for 5970 relatively to 580 is worth it?

Anyone who gets the 5970 over the 580 is a fool.

The 580 will offer a much smoother experience since it's a single card vs a dual card.

It's not "spamming" it isn't the word for it.

Maybe "trolling", but no.

Your question was very very unclear.


On the serious side, no.

The 5970 is a very powerful card, and why would you spend more?

Read.

1) 8-ball had a point...that was an awkwardly worded question but I think I got it
2) No, not worth it. A 5970 will have more performance but it's still Crossfire at the end of the day and while I don't have any major issues with 5870 cf (which is basically the same as a 5970) I have run into some problems with drivers (non major) with the CF. I would recommend the 580, it also has more room for a nice OC. This is coming from a guy with 5870's...I'd say the 580 is the better option.

Technically better? Micro-stuttering and blistering heat is technically better?

I've never had problems with a single or SLI 580, and I've owned both ATI and Nvidia cards. So far, the 580's have been an absolute joy. Maybe I was lucky...CF 5870 didn't give me even an inkling of a headache compared to my mate and his love-hate relationship with his 5970.

Get 2 6970 and cross fire them it will be 40% faster than 5970 and 30 % faster than Gtx 580 very smooth in every game

The stuttering didn't seem to affect much on the bench results...
TPU reported that 5970 is about 5% better than GTX 580 in average... But okay, 5970 costs maybe 50 bucks more in my country, so it is actually doesn't worth the extra money.

Tnx
