Seeing as ati are now starting to release the 6000 series or not.... Because i'm selling my xbox 360 (the new one with a ton of stuff) and my hd 5770. So I need to sell them pretty soon to make sure i get enough. So should i wait, risking the fact the hd 5770 will probably drop in price or sell them right now and buy the hd 5870? I need a reply ASAP as I want to sell these quickly to get the most cash. Thanks guys More about : buying 5870 Metroidman October 22, 2010 9:29:31 AM At this time honestly the best bet is a GTX470.
