hey all, i finally finally FINALLY! upgraded from my 5770! after much thought, many umms and ahhs! i have gone with the 5870! and for an awesome price i might add won off ebay with full manufacturers warranty and 6 months store warranty for 206!!! so happy, is my phenom 965 going to bottleneck this at all?
SWEEEEEEEEET im so excited! hurry up royal mail and get me my card! it better max out metro 2033! i played it through on mainly high with my 5770, but i had to lose tesselation and a few more bits and lower the res anyone know if it will max it?
Have fun with that setup, awesome choices!
+1 Phenom II is plenty for a 5870.
You'll max Metro for sure. The 5870 SMASHES the 5770. I wouldn't expect to max your AA though. That game is damn demanding.
