Re: HD 5770 or HD5830??

I'm looking at getting a sapphire 5850 second hand. Stil under warranty for a good price. Think its best if I run gpu Z on it and test its temperature? Anything else I should worry about on a second hand card? I was looking at the 460 gtx but then I thought why not spend the extra cash and get a rea...

Re: HD 5770 or HD5830??

Well sapphire is the best of the manufacturers hey? Judging by the price. A lot of manufacturers make the same card
Without adding aftermarket parts or anything. I just thought its maybe a question of quality? Didn't know manufacturers change specs

Re: HD 5770 or HD5830??

I spoke to a friend last night,he convinced me to just spend a lil extra cash and get a 5850.
I've seen a sapphire 5850 game edition for R3200. Has anyone seen it cheaper? I normally look on prophecy.co.za
Any other good sites?

Sorry I don't know where to post this topic so I will do it here...
Can someone please explain the affiliation part in my profile. Does it make a difference if I'm affiliated with zombies,vampires,pirates??
Sorry I don't get it. I'm sure you have guessed I'm new to the forum.

Re: HD 5770 or HD5830??

Ok I just had a look at a gtx 460 1gb. For 2700 and some change. They say its cooler,quieter,has more oc headroom and is generally 15 - 30 % faster than the 5830. So it looks like I'll be going with that card. Anyone heard something bad about it?

LED for gaming?

I'm getting a samsung bx2335 soon. Its a 23 inch LED. Is it any good for gaming? Will a HD5830 be able to cope wit 1920 x 1080 res?
I'm just wondering if its a good buy or should I look at something else

Re: HD 5770 or HD5830??

Never seen a 5850 for R2800! Anyway I think I should mention that I'm buying a samsung 23 inch LED so I'll be running games on 1920 x 1080 res.
Apparently the 5770 struggles on high res? And has anyone heard anything about that monitor? Good or bad?
