The HD5870 is a rather poor deal for the money in comparison. Here is a reference HD5850 with 2 games for £217; http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX... The reference card allows you to bump up the voltage on the core for a huge overclock, usually up around 1ghz. At that speed it will be much better than a stock HD5870, more in line with a GTX 480. The GTX 470 overclocks a huge amount as well so that is another option; http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX... ares1214 a b U Graphics card August 19, 2010 10:45:08 PM Wow, old thread! In any event, i agree, go with the 5850, oc it, and boom. The 470 is good, however has all the curses of fermi, and costs a decent bit more. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
