I read a few reviews here and there and it seems that a whole PC with the 4850 graphic card would eat up to 260 w in full load...I'm not sure of that because some reviews said that a PC with a 5670 card would eat up to 230 w in full power. I know this doesn't seem real cuz the 5670 is a much weaker card...
Ask if you can pay a "small fee" to upgrade from the HD 5670 to the HD 5750.
The HD 5750 basically has the same performance as the HD 4850 (actually a couple of % slower) and consumes a little more than half the power of the HD 4850. I think under typicalgaming conditions thats 66w vs. 120w.
Here the 5750 is like 200$
My 4670 is around 120$
5670 is like 140$
The extra 80$ is a lot for me at least...
If you can afford a Humvee, yeah the roads are great !
Also to get to that "fantastic road" on which that Top Gear episode was filmed you need a helicopter.
It was kind of lucky that they had one on hand then. That's enough OT, I'm out.
I play at 1680x1050, the only 4770 available is Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 4770, PCI-E, 1GB, 128 bit, GDDR5 which is 10$ cheaper than the 5750, still out of my price range.
For now I'll stay with 5670 and in the future go for a better PSU and better graphic card
I can't buy the graphic card anywhere else than my local store cuz my old 4670 blew up and it's in waranty so I only have to give the difference between which card I want and my old 4670 and the prices are a 10% higher than on a online shop.
My old 4670 was 115$ 2 years ago, 4850 is 125$ and a 5750 is 200$. I have only 80$ to spare so it's 4850 + PSU or only 5750, but I think 5750 would work on my 420w PSU it has 24A on 12v
I'm not sure if someone here is still considering the 5670, but I was looking at getting one (and eventually did) and during my research I found out that the 1GB version and the 512MB version perform almost identically in most situations; http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1187/1/
I'm only running 1440x900, but with AAx8 and detail setting at Very High, Batman:AA runs smoothly.
5750 is much faster than the 5670, at least in DX11 5670 is failing, I'm not planing to use DX11 but overall 5750 is better. In the link you posted 5750 is at least 50% faster in every test...so now I'm more enthusiastic about the 5750. But if my PSU can run it...that's another story.IMO it should.
I have a 24A PSU (12v1 14A, 12v2 10A), I have a friend that runs 5750 on 6 year old no-name 320w PSU with 17 A on 12v (one rail) and played games like Metro 2033 on high settings without any problems. I guess my PSU can run the 5750 just fine...
