Graphics cards for shogun 2

Hello, I am wondering what Graphics card would be more able at running shogun 2 on high/ultra settings or if these cards can even manage it. The graphics cards are the

XFX ATI Radeon HD5770 SS Eyefinity Graphics Card PCI-e 1 GB DDR5 Memory 2x DVI DP Single Slot


and the


Radeon Sapphire HD5870


Thanks.

  1. The Radeon 5870 would definitely be more capable than the 5770, though both are getting a little old now. Do you currently have one or the other or are you looking to buy a new one? Also, what PSU are you running and what CPU do you have?
  2. This is going to be my first custom pc build. I am planning to use a Intel Sandybridge i5-2500K Unlocked Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155), and a XFX Pro550W psu. I just need to decide on a good graphics card for running the game on high/ultra.
  3. Nice setup so far. What resolution are you planning on gaming at? Also, this may help out a little. Check the chart at the end as well. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html
  4. indahoop what card does your current pc have?
  5. Also I have decided on some more components.

    Seagate ST31000524AS 3.5 inch Barracuda 1TB GB 7200rpm SATA Drive with 32MB Buffer

    Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB RAM 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Two Module Kit
  6. Also, here is a link to Anandtech's Bench for both the Radeon HD 5770 and 5870, so you can see the difference at different resolutions. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/538?vs=511
  7. my current pc has a xfx radeon hd 7870 which is a fairly good card

    Nice. Any problems with it so far?
  9. Thanks for the benchmark website. The gtx 570 looks really promising actually and it isnt hugely expensive either.

    I think you'll be happy with the gtx 570. I had a water cooled one before it leaked and died on me... it is a really good card.
