Solved Choosing a card? Tags: Radeon Resolution Core Games Graphics Last response: July 27, 2010 1:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share progunnerboi July 27, 2010 11:34:45 AM Ok. So I want to play games on 1920x1080 resolution.....I am not sure whether I should buy a card which can just run at that resolution or a card which can run at that resolution with MAX AA/AF. I having thinking about the 5770 and 58 series and quite clueless........ Some INFO on the card: The 5870 and the 5850 both use Cypress cores, and the 5770 uses a Juniper core. The breakdown is as follows: Core Clock: 850MHz (5870), 725MHz (5850), 850MHz (5770) Mem Clock: 1200MHz (5870), 1000MHz (5850), 1200MHz (5770) Mem interface: 256bit (5870), 256bit (5850), 128bit (5770) Shader units: 1600 (5870), 1440 (5850), 800 (5770) So Please Gimmi some good suggestions thanks!

OK CPU - I3-550 Ram-2x2GB corsair DDR3 240pin XMS PSU-A Corsair HX modular 620walts Monitor-BenQ 21.5 inch V2220 Ok so in my country the prices are like this for the different cards(Converted to US)I plan to buy 1GB card 5770- $183 5850- $301 5870- $440 Actually Both 5850 n 5870 exceeded my budget.But if its good for the longrun then I may consider saving up for it. So 1920x1080 resolution should be no problem with all 3 cards. But AA and AF will not be good enough for 5770. So if I dun mind that AA and AF is just half which should I go for. I want a 5870 overall but its seriously a SUPER big difference in pricing. m 0 l Related resources Choosing the right Graphics Card. - Forum Looking for Best non reference cards and choosing a card for $300 - Forum Help with choosing vid card for older tower - Forum Need help choosing my gfx card. - Forum Choosing a video card. - Forum Can't find your answer ?
