I'm planning on buying a 5770 to use on my new build. I was wondering if anyone had insight over differences between brands for 5770. I know there is a generic design model from ATI for manufacturers to follow, but their fans are different and they likely have some differences in performance. I was looking and I see a few that piqued my interest.
If you aren't planning to overclock the standard card is perfectly fine. However, if you are looking to push the limits a little, I think any of those cards would be good. I do like the MSI HAWK card. However, I didn't know HIS made an IceQ version. I really like that line of coolers, it's one the the best.
I honestly could go either way. The IceQ cooler has not changed for a while, because it works well. All they did was take their cooler and put it on a 5770 card. Same with the MSI card. I would feel good about either. I like that the HIS blows it out the back.
dude im on the same trouble as you! im beetween the hawk or the iceq.
But im finally getting the hawk! Reaso? it is almost imposible to find any his iceq 5 seller on the internet plu it dosesnt has a Afterburner softaware(From MSI) that alows you to do a perfect overclock..Anyway the msi has military quality parts and two huge fans plus three ultra-fat pipes that awesomely blows the total amount of heat out of the card!
hope thisworks for you (:
