Which 5870 ?
Feb 9, 2010, 11:03 AM
Just sent back a Sapphire 5850 because of very poor performance and have ordered an ASUS 5870 instead but im not sure if i made the right choice.
I have a small window where i can change my order and ive been thinking about Gigabyte or HIS 5870.
What do you guys think ?
Are there any real differences in card quality from either 1 or the other or would you go for the Gigabyte over the ASUS ?
You do get a nice little torch come screwdriver thingy with the HIS & a case badge.
Its so confusing somebody please give me some guidance ?

What about the other specs?
5870 might an overkill, depend on your system.
But agree, if they all are on the same prices(not too far), choose the cheapest.
