ATi 5770 vs. 5750 vs. 2x 4850 in CrossFireX Tags: Radeon Graphics Product Last response: August 20, 2010 6:55 AM in Graphics & Displays Share lorenzol August 18, 2010 6:36:10 PM Hello, I do a lot of photo, music, and video editing, some mild-serious gaming- I like to play in HIGH graphics, and I also need it for homework. I have a 250$ budget for my GPU (s), and I have come up with three options for my ATi build (I have plans to compare it with an nVidia build). Any help would be appreciated.

Tell us your full specs including monitor... lorenzol August 19, 2010 3:16:39 AM Well, actually, I'm planning on giving my old rig to my parents. Old rig: 2.9 Athlon AMD 4850 1GB XFX 600W OCZ 4GB For my new rig, I was thinking of getting a PSU in the 7xx-8xx range. 4-8GB of RAM a Core i7/i5 at <3.2 GHZ lorenzol August 19, 2010 3:17:14 AM Right now, I have a Samsung monitor at 1600 x 900, but I might get a Dell 1920 x 1080 Timop August 19, 2010 3:18:28 AM 4850 in crossfire would be the best performance wise, but your PSU would be a little overwelmed. wa1 August 19, 2010 7:05:09 AM Save a little bit and get HD5850, it would be great for 1920x1080... lorenzol August 19, 2010 5:14:42 PM Okay, for me, I choose my PSU's after I've decided what parts, so, what would be a better buy? A 5000 series card, or two 4850's in CF wa1 August 20, 2010 3:10:31 AM I always prefer a single card solution better than dual (CF/SLI) cards solution. And do not get the old tech like HD4xxx series, you'll better with 5xxx series, like HD5850 or even HD5870... itouchedyou August 20, 2010 6:55:58 AM Definitely go with a single 5850. Power usage of the 4000 series cards are quite high, as well as a dead end in terms of future upgradability. And don't bother with more than 4gb of ram, it's not worth it. Can't find your answer ?
