2x 5770 or 1x 6850 and a second 6850 later - Page 2

I looked at the Gigabyte, 3year warranty was partly why I didn't get it.

I also don't mind reference designs. The VisionTek has the lifetime warranty. I also was limited on where I could make my purchase this time. Which was not from newegg. The place I purchased it from was cheaper then the Gigabyte, they didn't have XFX which I wouldn't have gotten anyway, and the other choice was Sapphire and HIS.

Wow this card turned out really nice. I like the cooler and everything don't think it's ugly at all. Took the plastic shroud off and it's got a nice size heatsink with heat pipes cover this thing...

So far my idle temps are 30c
After about an Hour of Bad Company 2 was at 57c

Hey TwiggLe,

You and I have similar systems (I can't get the 4th core on my cpu to unlock frown.gif ), I wasa thinking the same thing you were, but decided to go with the 6850, and get another in few months. When you get your second one, let me know how it is and if it's worth it.

Yeah so far I like my 6850 alot. No issues at all. my 3dMark Vantage score was 12xxx can't remember exactly.

I'm getting a new PSU before I get my second 6850 so it will be a few months. I doubt my 500w will fair too well with 2 GPU's.
