As the title says, what's the difference?

Also, I was wondering what would be the best 5770 for a case with not so great air flow, I have a Dell 435MT. I was thinking one with a reference cooler would be best since it blows hot air out of the case, but wasn't sure since there is practically no fresh air coming in.

And thirdly, is 5670X2 > 5770?

Thanks for any advice. :D

Actually neither of those , use the reference cooler , this one does.

The others use heat pipes and are not completely vented out the back like the xfx one is.
A 5670 has 400 stream Processing Units which is half a 5770, so a 5670 in crossfire would probably NOT be faster.

edit: I would go with the cheaper Saphire you pointed out.

Ok, so do you know any difference between those 2 Sapphire cards? And what made you switch from the reference cooler to the Sapphire card? What about the Vapor-X model, ASUS CuCuore, or the MSI HAWK version that is going to be released?

The vapor-x, CuCore and Hawk versions will be factory overclocked and have different coolers.

I'm curious, what is it in the specs of the vapor -x specs lead you to believe its factory overclocked?? I just bought the vapor x model and I believe I carefully inspected the specs and saw no difference between it and the other 5770's. I thought I was paying extra for a cooler that was slightly quieter/cooler??

The Vapor-X model has a core clock of 860mhz rather than 850.
So nobody know what the difference between the -2L and -3L models are?
And i could still use more input on which model to get for a Mid tower that doesn't have great airflow.
Thanks :wahoo:

The 2L and 3L versions will perform the same, they just have different coolers attached.

If your case dose not have good cooling then maybe the stock cooler on the 5770 will be best, like this:

heat will be vented directly out of the case rather than recirculated with the 2L and 3L coolers.

In regards to the Hawk version, I read the reviews and impressed with the cooling solution. The whole look of the card, it also definitely has the ability to over volt via sofware for o/c. Would this heavy duty model o/c and run more stabily than one of the more manistream models , I don't know. If you could get this for a good price, I'd go for it.
