Frozr 5770 Hawk vs. GTX460 Cyclone

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm replacing an 8800GT, and yesterday installed a new MSI HD5770 Twin Frozr Hawk.

I had wanted an ATI card because I really like video transcoding with their AVIVO product, but I found that OpenGL/CL games suddenly didn't work with the ATI card and I can't justify keeping the card and going through driver hell just for the encoding reason. Really, the latest Radeon display drivers were at fault. (and I need my daily fix of Angry Birds!!) -- once I downgraded the drivers all the way back to 10.1, the problem was gone.

But that frustrates the heck outta me, and others from what I've read. So I think I might get this MSI GTX460 instead:

Comparing the two cards side by side with the stats from the Tom's Hardware GPU charts, the Cyclone sounds like a real winner all around. But please if anyone has some sound advice, I'd listen!

thanks,

great card, make sure you get the 1GB, much better card if you play at high resolutions.
