6870 vs 5870 which is better. - Page 4

post #31 of 34
I decided to grab Asus HD5850 DirectCU TOP Crossfire. I overclocked them to 950/1200 with a small voltage bump and my scores are the same as HD5870 is crossfire or better? I paid a total of $330 for both cards. Talking of scaling...

Also guys im looking for the best OCing card. So far the 6970 sounds the best due to the low heat (meaning theoreticly i can pump more volts into it.)

I went with 2 x 6870's on xfire, on a MSI 890FXA-
GD70. Anyone have an idea where I can put my 9800GT for hybrid physx?
Slot 3 & 4 are both open as well as slot 6, but space is minimal.
9800GT is slightly over 1 slot cooler.
If you need pics let me know, please help.
