[ATI] 5750 CF vs. 5850 or other suggestions

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Next week or early next month

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming and some HD video. I play lot's of FPS including Bad Company 2, Crysis, ARMA 2 and I will be buying BF3 and ARMA 3. I play on high settings.


: Intel i7 870, 4GB RAM, Cyborg 910 Case. 2 pull fans one at the front and one on the side. 1 Push/pull fan at the back, and liquid cooled.


PARTS PREFERENCES: Open to suggestion but I've always had ATI in the past

OVERCLOCKING: Most likely not CROSSFIRE: Maybe

: 1280x1024,

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Want to know if the 5850 (single) will run better then the 5750s CF? Want to get another 5750 or replace it with something better.

Thank you

  1. You should replace your current card with a 5850.At your resolution a 5850 should run all games at max settings.

    Check out this review which includes the 5750 in crossfire and the single 5850:

    In most cases, you'll gain 10-20% performance with 2 5750s in crossfire.

    If you're considering these two options, I'd say go with 2 5750s since performance is rated better and since it will be less of an expense to buy another 5750 than it is to buy a 5850.
  3. 5850s are disappearing from the market already -- you probably want to be considering a 6950 at that price/performance point.

    I just faced a similar decision and decided to get a 6950 instead of another 5770. It cost more, but is less very cool/quiet and wont have any crossfire tech issues.
  4. Alright, thank you. Just another question, might as well kill two birds with one stone. Up until 2 days ago my computer was running fine no crashes good fps in all games etc. Then yesterday and today everything went to hell, low fps in SC and crysis and I even got a blue screen today my temps are lowish in the 29- 32 area. Anyone know what could be happening?
  5. How's the rest of the PC doing? Are you OC'ing anything?
  6. Nope no OC on anything. I reformatted yesterday and everything is going good so far. I'm gonna try out a new AV not impressed with BitDefender at all. Had a keylogger and a trojan and it didn't find either of them. I'm using a trail of AVG's premium AV and it's working really well now.
  7. Alright I have a new update on the situation. I was playing STALKER Call of Pripyat and my computer just restarted itself. It didn't just shut itself off though, it updated windows and shut all my programs down 1 by 1. Any ideas?
