hello ATI community...

this time it seems that I going to try my first card from ATI, so I am looking to get one of those HD 5000 series, the cards that are available in my country (Syria) are limited to just as the following right now:

1- HD5750 EAH5750/2DIS/1GD5/A :

http://dpsy.com/product.php?prod_id=...sp=0_71_79_301

2- HD 5850 EAH5850/G/2DIS/1GD5 :

http://dpsy.com/product.php?prod_id=...sp=0_71_79_298

3- HD 5870 EAH5870 /G/2DIS/1GD5 :

http://dpsy.com/product.php?prod_id=...sp=0_71_79_299

and according to my humble budget, I think I will more likely get the HD 5750 one, but my question now is, is there a big difference between this card and the other 2 over-priced ones ???

what is the difference ?


what do you recommend then ? since this will be my first time with ATI .

Huge difference in performance.

edit saw your monitor all you need is a 5750...you dont even need a 5770 which I think is a slightly better buy.

but yes the 5850 is almost double the performance over the 5750. crossfired though they scale decently.

well i might be a bit biased as i have one but the 5850 is one mean card
the 5750 has about same performance as hd 4850

the hd5850 can be clocked to hd5870 speeds
in my mind the hd 5870 dosn't offer that much more performance

If you plan to keep your 17 inch monitor then the 5750 will be fine for you.It really just depend's what you can afford if you can get a 5850 it beat's out the Nvidia GTX 285 by a little.

To bad they don't have a 5770 that would be a good card for you and is the sweet spot for a lot of people.Maybe you can find it somewhere else.

in the near future, I think am going to upgrade my LCD too, so I am thinking of getting this 24 inch one:

so will the 5750 not work fine with this 24 inch LCD ?

get the 5850, can be overclocked to better performance than the 5870 and you wont need a new gpu for a long time

- I am upgrading my system soon to an i5 build, but I want to upgrade my PSU and the graphics card first .

The E8400 will not bottleneck any card if that's what you are wondering.

am I correct, or I will be more fine getting the GTS 250 ?

You could also look into the HD4870, as it's faster then both the HD5750 and the GTS250.

Neither is the GTS250, and yet you are considering it. So I figured you'd be open for more options.

Either way if you are set on DX11, the HD5770 is a nice card.

oh yeah... you are right, my answer confused you, so I am sorry, but I mentioned the GTS 250, because I thought of it since a long time, and I studied it, and saw alot of reviews on the web about it, and what pushed me to mention it is that I noticed that the GTS 250 is 256 bit, while the newer HD 5750 is still 128 bit, so it was a kind of comparison, but the DirX11 side still attempts me much.

an in all way my budget is limited, and seems it will just force me to buy the HD 5750, unless in the next few days prices will drop down here.

Ok well as said the HD5750 will give a nice increase over your 8500GT.

????

Sure, it just depends what you will be doing. Do not expect to run the latest titles at maximum settings at that res (1920x1200).

DX11 is not worth considering a different card for with worse performance. To be honest, DX11 probably won't even run too well on the 5750. I suggest taking a look at the 4870 and the 4890, both of which are much faster than the 5750 and a better value.
