Hi all,
I currently have a q6600
4gb xms2

These 4 graphic cards are at my disposal, all at the same price for me.
Please tell me which one and why.
Also if i go with the 5770 whats the adv except dx11. can i game at ultra high at 720p with 5770?



1> MSI Geforce GTX260 192shaders OC model 896MB
2> HIS Ati Radeon HD4890 Icooler X4 1GB
3> HIS Ati Radeon HD5770 1GB
4> XFX Ati Radeon HD5770 1GB

my max resolution is 1680X1080.and i am not interested in core i series.
THanks all.

My power supply is a Corsair TX850.
Motherboard is an Intel DG33FB with 1 PCIE.
Heat, Size, Power, Noise,Rain has is no issue for me. Coz my casing is sound proof and i use solar elec.
Also i dont have 2 or 3 monitors for eye finity and i already have a great sound card. All i need is performance when i plug it into my 70" full hd 1080p TV.

First answer: I'd personally go for the XFX Radeon HD5770. It'll handle just about anything you throw at it, and (with the possible exception of Crysis) you'll be able to achieve some Hi-Def gaming with plenty of eye candy.
The 4890 isn't a bad card, but personally, I like the idea of future-proofing. Not to mention the 4890 is freakin' huge and power-hungry

Second answer: The advantages of the 5xxx series of Radeons include not only DX11, but Eyefinity, ATI Stream (similar to nVidia's CUDA), and Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support. Not to mention it's lower power draw and operating temperatures vs. the previous generation of GPUs. The cards are also physically smaller than the previous generation, making it easier to fit it into almost any case.

The only real advantage to the GTX260 is if you want to run PhysX in certain titles, or you're playing a game that supports 3D-Vision and have the rest of the equipment to go with it. Personally, I don't think it's worth it.

Hope this answers it for you.

Personally I think the motherboard (specifically the number of PCI-E slots) and the power supply will have a bearing on which card would be the best to get. For instance, if you have the power supply to crossfire either of the first two cards then that might be the best for pure performance, but your PSU might not have enough power or connectors to be able to crossfire the GTX 260 or 4890. In which case it would be better to leave yourself the option of getting two 5770s.

Personally I would go for either the 4890 or 5770. Both should be fine with all but the newest games (and some demanding older ones) at your max/native resolution.

Some benchmark on thos 3 cards http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3658&p=1 one will do good in one game and the other in another game


I would go with the HD 5770 DX11 less heat and power usage and the XFX one it has a better warranty

I was actually considering buying the xfx ati radeon hd 5850 which was 50$ less than the gtcx 280 i ended up buying.
