I've found two local sellers and I'm wondering what do you think is a better deal not which one is the more advanced card. The XFX 5870 is used but in excellent condition and the MSI R770 Hawk is new.

MSI R770 Hawk: $108

XFX Radeon 5870: $180

Below is my current specs to look off.

  • Intel Core i7-920/ 2.66ghz, quad-core, 64 bit
  • Intel x58 express mobo
  • 3GB DDR3 1066MHz 240 pin (replacing with Crucial 12GB DDR3 next week)
  • 750GB ATA hard drive
  • ATI Radeon HD 4850, 512 MB
  • 650W max earthwatts PS

    lol or should i not even bother with the two?
    Thank you

    Why does it say $202 in the link for the 5770? That is robbery!
    The HD5870 is twice the performance of the HD5770 but $180 is a little steep for a used card comparing http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


    The HD 6870 is not as powerful as the HD 5870.

    The HD 5870 is as good/better than the HD 6950.

    I know that but for the performance difference $180 is steep for a used card when you can get HD6870 for $160!
