Hi, I'm having a hard time choosing a card. If I want a card that 1.) consumes only a moderate amount of power, 2.) doesn't take up too much space, 3.) will be replaced after about 1.5 to 2 years and 3.) has a pretty good bang:buck ratio lol, should I get a 5770?
I don't expect to play crysis on max, I just want to play this year's games on med-high settings when ever I do game. Actually, I'd like to play Crysis 2 on max if I could without breaking the bank hehe.
5770 is a good "bang/buck card in that price range. Your other components will also factor in on gaming performance. With all else adequate, my 5770 maxes out most games, particularly Rise of Flight, which is very graphic intensive.
When the card worked, it worked great, played all my games on max settings at 1050 resolution (cant get it to go 1080 for some reason, even though I have HDMI cables and a 27in widescreen 1080 moniter) but after 4-5 months, its starting to take a *** on me. Dont know if its something that I did, or its just a POS. I have mixed feelings about it......
