  1. I know 5770's are similar to the 4870, and I know 5770's (x2 xfire) are the same/a tad bit better than the 5870. I know the 5770's overclock like a champ, but considering the 4870 is a tad bit better htan the 5770 im asuming that yes, 4870's CF are better than the 5850.

    They might be faster but they are also obsolete to the point that many manufactures have already stopped selling them. They draw more power and create more heat also.

    I would get a single 5850 over dual 4870's any day, later of if needed all you have to do is slap a second 5850 and you are set.
  3. sounds like a good idea plus i play a lot of dx 11 games so. as far as manufatures go, what would be the best right now i was looking at a powercolor with a stock overclock core clock of 760 mhz would sapphire or xfx be better? i around 300$ to spend so.
  4. I like XFX better for their double lifetime warranties. I would also recommend the 5850 for better future proofing, as well as better efficiencies already mentioned. However, I am running 2 x 4890's in CF and they get better frames than a 5870.
