From what i have read on various forums the 5770 is actually a downgrade. I'm starting to wonder if i should push for them to give me a 5830 as it's much closer to a 4890 then the 5770. I don't want to settle for a downgrade and if they do not give me the 5830 is it worth paying the difference (£40).
My current system spec is;
Windows 7 ultimate.
Q6600 Quad 2.33Ghz Processer.
Any advice and tips on how to argue for the 5830 would be appreciated as i think they are offering me a downgrade.
The 4890 ->5770 sure is a downgrade.
If you're going to push or nudge at all - push for a 5850.
They might balk at that and offer a 5830 anyway. Maybe not quite as powerful but not as much of a downgrade as going to 5770. It's probably a fair offer considering price.
Aye, They're offering a 5770 as a replacement priced at £122. When i brought my 4890 it was £152 and the 5830 is £189. Do you really think i should push for a 5850? It's £252 which is £100 more then my card was.
If you can give me anything that i can use to argue over the phone for the 5830 or even the 5850 i would really appreciate it.
But what would i say when i ring them? That a number of studies online have proven that the 5830 is closer to the 4890 then the 5770 and the 5770 is a downgrade? It seems to me like i should really be pushing for the 5850 tbh, They should be giving me a replacement card that is just as good, if not better then my orignal card regardless of the price tag. The card should not have failed in the first place.
I just need some help to back up my arguement if you understand what i mean. I know the 4890 is better then the 5830 but i don't know how to explain it to them.
Thank you for replies, any extra help would be appreciated.
