im thinking about making a sale thread to trade my 4870 +crash for a 5770 would it be worth it?

will i lose significant performance in half life 2 episode 2? or any other games?

thanks

^^ Lies.

Why wait for something else? Sell that 4870, pick yourself up a *quality* 5770, and enjoy the amazing picture clarity, low power consumption, and low temps.

Variety is the spice of life. Give it a shot!

apparently with newer drivers the 5770 is closer to the 4890 than the 4870... though that's still meaning you'll get at best 20-25% performance boost (20% from 4870-> 4890, and being generous, 5% from driver improvements)

i wouldn't think that that would be worth it unless it ends up costing you something like $20 or less

Link is dead, but if its reference, you might be able to work something out. Good luck!
