IS MY RAM A PROBLEM?
cuz when ever i see the task manager it shows around 500mb free.
thanks guys.. i think going to cut short my holiday and get both.. but i have one question.. why does the task manager show empty space in the ram and how to know what amount of ram the computer could actually use..??
hybyprime - They do? Strikingly close to 5870 performance? According to the Tom's Hardware article a single 4770 did not do well against the other cards. It took two 4770's in Crossfire mode to smoke a single 4890. They never compared two 4770's against two 4890's. In fact, the 4770's were not compared with any other cards in dual mode. The way I understood the article it was the low price and low power consumption that really made two 4770's look good. At the time you could get two 4770's for $30.00 less than a single 4890.
thanks guys, make more sense now.. selling off the 4770 and getting a 4870. buying another one would come to the same thing almost, and with the 4870 also have to scenario of upgrading. But is dx 11 and the 5 series worth it?
