Just Picked Up 5870...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just ordered a brand new reference XFX (not the custom PCB, heard bad things) 5870 for £190. After selling my 4870x2, I only spent £60.

Was this a bad move? confused.gif

well it isnt the best move since the ati 6xxx is the newest gen. but without crossfire you save electricity. about performance i think the crossfire would have been just under the 5870, it wouldnt be terribly worse. just a bit. but i think that its not a bad move, its not the best but its just a "upgrade" to newer technologies. so dont regret it.

your welcome.

Yeah I was gonna get an ATI 6870 which is around about the same price of the 5870, but it performs slightly worse.

Every other card costs lots more than the 5870 tongue.gif

well the thing is: you get what you pay for...tongue.gif

more you spend the better performance, new tech, its always been like this and i know its a rip off but some people bleed cash...(hardcore gamers eg.4 way 6970;))

I got it and whoa what a difference from my HD 4890, I am keeping the 4890 it was a sweet card and gets the "back up" position smile.gif

Although with my power supply and cpu the next "upgrades" going to be a new machine, this setup is bottleneck hell I suspect?

Although no issues what so ever gaming smile.gif
