  1. This 5870 isn't a cheap one, it just happens to be on sale. Its normally $299 - $20 (SALE) - $28 (COUPON) - $30 (MIR) = $221.99 Besides, its a $20 difference in price to go from the 6850 to the 5870
  2. After doing a little more "digging in the couch" I got some more $$$ to spend, so Im thinkin about going Crossfired Still go with the 5870?
  3. Im sorry for jumping in at what looks like the end of this conversation, but...... Does this mean that I should be looking at an nVidia card instead of AMD/ATI? (ie: look at the GTX 460 or 470 over the HD 5870/6870?)
  4. I know that I wont have the cash for the 6900 series cards (expected to be over $350). With that in mind, I do want to do a upgrade now. After doing a little more research, the 5870 looks to have more power than the 6870 and with the sale on these sapphire cards, its actually cheaper....... The 5870 has 1600 streamline processors while the 6870 has 1280. The 5870 also has about 30 gb/s men bandwith advatage over the 6870. I should also say that I know that just because the numbers are higher doesn't mean overall performance is better. Im just not 100% sure with these cards With current pricing, I can do a crossfired pair of Sapphire 5870 1GB cards for about $400 and the crossfired pair of XFX 6870 1GB cards would be about $500+. With that "new" info, would u guys get the 5870 or 6870?
  5. Im looking to upgrade my graphics card and I finally have some extra cash. I've been looking into a 6870 for about $260 but Newegg has a 5870 on sale for $215 after MIR Im thinkin about the SAPPHIRE 100281-3SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB or the XFX HD-687A-ZNBC Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition 1GB cards. I have 2 questions...... 1) If I put one card into my system, which card is the best option? 2) If I crossfired the cards, which card is the best option?
  6. Im currently running 1920x1080 and Im lookng to stay around $250, but $200ish is my goal
  7. Its not just Black Ops that is feeling sluggish, its and overall gameplay thing. Also, that GTX 460 that bp9801 listed is going for $170 shipped from newegg. Other GTX 460's are going for about $180-$200. The EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 is $180 After MIR and Coupon. Because of the price, should I go ahead and get the GTX 460 over the 6870?
  8. I currently have a GTX 260 216 core card and its getting to feel a little sluggish with newer games at high settings. Im getting around 40 FPS in Black Ops Multiplayer with High Settings. My goal is 60+ FPS. I want to upgrade to a new card to get some better gameplay. Currently Im looking at the new XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB card or a GTX 460 1GB card. From looking at the reviews OCC has done and some others, it appears the cards are pretty similar is specs and performance while the 6870 appears to be a little cheaper. I could be wrong, but from the reviews, it appears the GTX 460 does a little better in Physics games (Batman: Arkham Asylam for example) while the 6870 does better in most other games. Mostly Im playing FPS games and MMORPG games (Black Ops, MW2, WoW, SC2, etc.) From that, what card would be a better buy? Thanks for any suggestions, help, or opinions On a personal note, I hate it when cards are similar speced, it makes buying decison that much harder
  9. I currently have a OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W power supply, but it only has 2x PCI-E power connectors. Concern 1) Will this power supply support both of these cards? And if so, how can I get more PCI-E connectors, or do I even have to? Concern 2) What patch and bios do I update? Card, mobo, ????
  10. Also, the cheapest 260 I see is about $170 (after MIR)
  11. My current board is an ASUS M4A79 Deluxe It says its CrossFire supported, not SLI. How could I do that?
  12. The board I selected atm can do CrossFire
  13. So, I currently have a GTX 260 216 core and Im thinkin about upgrading it to get myself some better performance. Im looking at either a 5850, 5870, GTX 470 or GTX 480. Price isn't a huge issue, but I would like to keep it under $450-$500 The cards Im looking at currently are: 5870: XFX HD-587A-CNF9 Radeon HD 5870 2GB XFX HD-587X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5870 1GB 5850: XFX HD-585X-ZAFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB SAPPHIRE TOXIC 100282TXSR Radeon HD 5850 1GB GTX 470: EVGA 012-P3-1470-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB EVGA 012-P3-1472-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked 1280MB GTX 480: EVGA 015-P3-1480-AR GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB EVGA 015-P3-1482-AR GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) SuperClocked FTW 1536MB From that list, what do you guys think would be the best option? I've been using nVidia cards forever, but my buddy uses ATI and his seems to get a little better performance in-game than my GTX 260. I just cant decide which card would be the best bang for my buck, if that makes sense, lol I should also mention that I will be upgrading my computer soon also. It will have an AMD Phenom II x6 and 6GB of DDR3 1600.
  14. What kind of price you looking to spend?
