The 5970 is the best out of all of those by far. They all offer similar power consumption.

Indeed, the 5970 is by far the best and decent room for overclocking if that's your thing. The 480 and 295 do not have as much OC headroom as the 5970.

What's up Shadow, how's the 4850 treating ya?

Haha, I still owe you a lot for this. It's awesome, plays everything I have at max very decently. Feels great to run games in my monitor's native resolution.


Dunno if you can see her. She's happy at a max of 75c though. Once again thanks a bunch!

Also, this OP is 635 years old. o.O

Good to hear it, I ended up putting my 5870 on vacation and got a GTX 285 for a VERY nice price, so i will use it until i get another 5870 for x-fire or possibly a 5970.

Get a 5970 and run tri-fire. It sounds better than xfire, :lol: .

My next upgrade would be an HD5850, but that's in a year or so whenever I got a job, which I still can't legally do.

Powercolor isn't as bad as people make them out to be. But avoid diamond and sparkle.

If the gtx 295s were still priced at $420 i would definitely recommend them. I have both the gpus on mine clocked at gtx 275 specs and it performs amazingly. The gtx 295 still performs better than a 480, but now its massively overpriced i wouldnt get it. If you have space in your case and money to burn the 5970 has the most raw power.

i've been researching myself for a while now and 5970 is way faster then a 480 doesn't produce as much heat or power consumption..

didn't read the other posts but dont even bother looking at the competition this round if your looking for the best gpu period look no further then a 5970 I don't think anyone is actually disputing this and it would be funny to see it..

I agree that a 5970 is the best single card solution but not the best...

If you want the best; I would say 2 GTX 480's considering it beats the hell out of ATI's 5000 series in most directx 11 games and is a more future proof purchase then the 5970 considering how the GTX 480 handles tessellation and I think more games will be built around this tech. You also have better driver support from Nvidia and physx and cuda built into the 480. ATI has great hardware but still lacks in the driver department.

My last 4 year history with graphic cards have been...

1. 4870x2 paired with a 4870 = tri-fire and it ran great, no complaints

2. 2 5770's crossfired, ripped the heatsinks out and replaced with Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev.2's, I was able to overclock the vcore to 1030 and memory to 1300 and still stay below 68 degrees. Ran better then expected but lacked in directx 11 games such as BFBC 2 with minimum fps drops. and driver support was slow in certain games.

3. 2 GTX 480's running in SLI - RAW performance is all I can say, runs crysis better then the 5970 but kills it in most directx 11 games such as aliens vs predator and Metro 2033 and BFBC2 never drops below 45 fps and avg around 75 fps everthing set to high 32CSAA.

Temps never heat above 78 degrees on full load and idle around 38 - 41 depending on room temp.

I was eyeing the 5970 but guess what, found 2 new GTX 480's for around the same price on craigslist so I would say if you could find a deal like that; go for it.

Otherwise, I would suggest 2 5770's is the best bang for the dollar period, 100 dollars cheaper then a 5870 and out performs it, I compared both.

Not everyone told you that you need a really fast rig to push a 5970 or 2 480's I had to do a complete rebuild from a q9550 to a I7 960 which made World in Conflict jump from 54 fps to over 120 fps, That pretty impressive. I was able to get the 960 for 300 dollars as well.

Look for deals but if you cant wait, go with my suggestion @ 300 US dollars, you will be happy ;)

I agree you would be happy with two 5770s crossfired I just hope you don't run into a game that doesnt support crossfire and end up selling them for 250 at a loss like im about to do t.t

Why you say that, my temp on overclocked HD5770 on 1020-1300 don't go above 73C (with stock cooler) when work on stock speed (875-1200) temp is 69C....
I don't know why you recomment Artic Cooler Accelero....

No fans my man ;) 

Also, you only had one 5770? Try hitting those same clocks with 2 5770's and tell me what your results are. What stock coolers are you referring to? The Hawk is about the only stock cooler that comes to mind thats decent but it still comes at a price.

Im not a fan, this is my first ATI card. Until now i had 3 Nvidia card, both manufacturers have good card.

Maybe you'r right, i don't try in CrossFire mode...

He's saying that the card was silent because it had no fans on it...at least I think that's what he means.

If so, impressive Mr.Solid.
