Will it work?

Hey TomsHardware..

Thanks for the help in the paste..

I got a quick question, actually 2..
Is ATi better than geforce theese days?

And, will my Sapphire RADEON HD 5870 fit on my 590 sli chipset?

My motherboard does support PCI-e 16x 2.0 but is that all there is to, whether my card will work or not?

Once again thx for the help..

More about will work
  1. A 5870 will work with your motherboard

    Please don't ask "Is ATi better than geforce theese days?" You'll start a HUGE agruement/flame war.

    You have to make up your own mind, based on what you want from your graphics card. Personally I go for whoever is making the best bang for buck card be it ATi or nVidia.
  2. Thx alot..
    Allright, whats the difference than? all i hear about and read about ATM is ATi.. :)

    Well thats because ATi recently released their 5xxx Series cards with support for DX11 and eyefinity (use up to 3 monitors with 1 card)

    Both companys have perks, nVidia has PhysX, ATi has Eyefinity. ATi is the only company to have DX11 cards out, but nVidia will be releasing their DX11 cards soon-ish (No offical release date).

    Just shop around, read some reviews of different card, decide if physX or Eyefinity is important to you ( niether are to me).
