Which 5770 should i get?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
should i get a xfx 5770? or sapphire 5770? dont know much about each branding but i just want the card where it's worth the money. and also which will be a strong or stable power supply that will run those cards @ crossfire mode? also can different brand run Crossfire with the same type of series, for an example XFX 5770 running crossfire with MSI 5770?

The brand doesn't matter so much. I would get the cheapest one with programmable voltage so it's easier to crank up the clocks. Secondary considerations would be cooling, game/accessory bundle, then warranty. Any quality 500W PSU will more than do these cards fine, as the 5700 series cards sip power very efficiently.

If you're going to go with a 5770 go with the Sapphire or the MSI Hawk. Whats your Budget cause for 180 you can have your choice of an HD 6850 which will give you a much faster single card performance and also a WAY better Crossfire performance as the cards scale almost linear.

But Ontopic most users would have you stay away from XFX(You can search THE PROBLEMS with XFX customer service and questionable lacking quality) unless the card is a reference model(if so go with the cheapest),but if not go with Sapphire,MSI,Asus,Gigabyte,.

2nd this above. The 6850 is only slightly more expensive than a 5770 and is a much wiser choice.

save just a little more and get this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125348

See review here of the card overclocked to higher than stock 6870 (and close to overclocked 6870) levels:
http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/364...ked/index.html

Do NOT get the factory overclocked model here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125353

The factory OC model doesn't allow voltage change as it has a different VRM. The "standard" or "vanilla" model is the one in the review, the one I have, and is a wonderful card for the price.

As far as power supplies, any decent 650watt model should handle crossfire 5770's or 6850's, though a 750watt model is better for peace of mind.

Corsair PSU's are usually on sale/discount, or Antec True Power New models are a good buy too.

Sapphire 5770
post #6 of 8
Sapphire Vapor-x is as far as I'm aware as good as you can get for a 5770. However if you can afford it, I would highly recommend looking at the 6850, it's a brand new card and will be getting more of ATI/AMD's attention through drivers. Have a look at the Gigabyte non oc and Asus 6850's, for price I think they are the best. My 6850 can run every game I have thrown at it with excellent frame-rates, including Metro 2033 on dx9

I've used both, the Sapphire Vapor-x 5770 and XFX 5770. The RAM on the Sapphire seems to overclock a better and the GPU was cooler with the Vapor-X. They both work great still.
