More about whats 5770
  1. The Hawk is the best imo. The cooler is better and quieter than the CUCore and the Vapor-X doesn't allow for voltage control of the core for the best overclock.
  2. i dont mind the noise , as far as it runs cool
  3. my XFX does just fine, i have it OCed to 940/1400. No problems at all playing Metro 2013 on max

    i would reconsider what your saying. its impossible for a 5770 to max out Metro. what fps are you getting?


    as for the OP's question yes the Hawk is the best.
  5. does msi card have bad build quality when compared with xfx or asus ?

    No, MSI has really stepped up their game in the last year or so.

    XFX and Asus might be a little more high quality, but they are all really good.

    It can max out metro, but depends on what resolution. Anyway, metro is a nice game but they did a s'''' job on it's optimization. Wile i was climbing the tower i suddenly got 13fps in a view where not much was showed.

    I have a vapor-x version and if you do not really care about overclocking it is great, you can not hear the cooler at all, in any conditions and stays cool. And i hate that i can not modify the voltage for overclocking. I got stable at 960 core and 1350 ram.
  8. vapor-x imo

    as for 5770 maxing out metro... maybe in 600x800?

    for ur information on
    Intel core i7 870
    6gb ddr3 ram
    MSI GEFORCE GTX 260 SUPERCLOCKED 1792MB SINGL;E CARD
    WIN XP
    I get 35 fps in dx9 mode 1680 1050 rez AAA.Physx high
  10. dx 9 mode .. and you're not even using a 5770.. how are you in any way shape or form adding anythign relevant to this thread... you know other than proving your own incompetance?
  11. gtx260 is kind of on par with 5770 slightly overclocked. That is what he was trying to point out i think, no offense g00fysmiley but i own a 5770 and i know what it can do. I play at 1280x720 DX11 with everything on almost max(AF and AA are not set to max) and all DX11 futures enabled.
    Let's stop with the off.

    I also support jyjjy suggestion if you want to buy a 5770 and overclock it. If not the vapor-x.
  12. the problem is that METRO is TWIMTBP and bcoz of physx nvidia cards will kick ass.I own a 4890 but for some weird reason it gets lower frame rates in metro 2033 than my MSI GTX 260 CORE 216 1792MB SINGLE CARD SUPERCLOCKED WITH PHYSX ON HIGH AND AAA.Think its bcoz of the vram of my 260 1792 mb as compared to 4890 1GB.Also these cards max out every game out there at 1680X1050 so a 5770 is also a excellent card.Hell my gtx 260 MAXES CRYSIS WARHEAD ALL ENTHUSIAST 2XAA AT 29 40 FPS.So I would expect a 5770 to perform just as good.And when a card can max crysis warhead ar decent frame rates its guranteed you are future proofed at ur resolution.lol.So stop underestimating the 5770.Even in metro at 1680 1050 all it cannot max is tesselation and depth of field and with both enabled it is UNplayable even on a single 5970.

    @sashika.Buy the vapor-x or HAWX.Its a great card.u won't regret ur purchase
  13. am leaning towards the hawk because of the superb cooler , am just thinking twice because its msi . am worried if the build quality is bad or some thing

    No, MSI is amazing.

    ok well confusion here is when i mean "maxed" i mean every setting as high as it can go. namely AA, AF, Resolution, DX11. etc not just regular settings maxed. yes i can put the regular settings on max but i have to run it in DX10 with a low resolution. and then it gets annoying because whenever theres that smoke/light (whatever its called) the fps just cuts in half.. i dont blame the card, its a great card. i just blame the games poor optimization.


    yes the Msi Hawk is one of the best 5770's. dont worry its a good card
  16. yea but starting with crysis poor game optimization has resulted in people said zomg the game is aseom a high end computer can only run it maxed at 15fps its so ahead of its time... when its really just bad programming, but what can ya do.

    and i meant no disrespect to the 5770 its a good card and better than mine (8500gt) but dx11 max in metro it just can't push the inefficient program that benchmark tool... errr game. still bet it looks nice though on a 5770, my next build will actually either be cx 5770's or maybe sli 460's ... but waiting another year for bulldozer
  17. alright awesome , thanks alot for all the comments and opinions . appriciate it
  18. never run benchmark tools in games.They are not representative of actual gameplay.In GTA 4 the benchmark tools tells me an average of 63fps.But when measured with fraps during the whole day in the game it was 47fs.Even in crysis.It tells me an average of 24fps when i easily get 29-40 in the game.
  19. Got a saphire vapor x 5770 not bad runs cool and pretty quiet
