If you don't have to pay for it, it sounds an alright trade. | Report abuse bige420 January 31, 2010 10:40:54 AM I would be very happy with that trade, you get pretty much the same performance plus the addition of DX11 support and and slew of other features. Good trade. | Report abuse wa1 Graphics card Master January 31, 2010 2:01:50 PM yeah, u will be happy with 5870, less heat. less power consumption, dx11. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Performance> Related ressources: ForumWhich build will see better performance (in gaming, video editing,etc.) ForumSlow/bad performance with new build ForumHow much of a performance boost ?
