Hi all just wanted a bit of help before i go ahead and buy a new GPU.
First off i am buying it only for gaming and i am pretty sure i wont be doing eyefinity at all and even if i do it wont be for a long time.My main aim from this new card is to be able to play all the new games on maxxed out for a long time to come and im either looking at buying a vapor-X 5870 or the new 6990? those are the 2 choices i want to buy and i found a vapor x 5870 for fairly cheap at a store near me and i also thought later on i was thinking i could always xfire 2 of those later on so yeh any info would be great thanks.
Im cuy using a 4890 which is still doing pretty good for me but cant max out a few games right now and the 5870 vapor-x i can get is only $229 or one of my mates told me to look at the 6970's? should i be checking those out to?
Thanks again for all the info guys.
The HD6950 can be unlocked into an HD6970 and costs $70 less. It's likely your best choice.
If you plan on adding a second card in the future definitely get an HD6000 card. Crossfire scaling is greatly improved compared to the HD5000 cards.
