I am in the market for a new PC, a friend is selling his with a HD5770 for £200. What can this game run?
Skyrim? BF3? and how well? I can't seem to find much about this card

Well an HD 5770 is a bit old, anyways what resolution will you be playing at? If at high resolution then the 5770 would be weak. I myself have the HD 7770 (basically a newer HD 5770 that is more efficient) and I can max out skyrim with ultra settings at 1600x900.

Thanks guys. It will be 1280 x 760 (I think, or its 780 not sure).

It has to be better than my current EAH5450 Silent. I would be using it most for The Old Republic, GW2 and League Of Legends.

HD 5770 will do fine at 1280x780 (or was it 1280x1024?), however if you can try and ask your friend to sell the computer without the HD 5770, just go buy a HD 7770 and it will max out all games at the resolution.

Every DirectX11 compatable graphics cards can run every game at maximum settings.The thing is that not all of them can run them at max with high FPS.
And while i do agree that the HD 7770 will run games very well at that resolution, there are games that it can't even play on high @ that resolution.We're not talking ultra here.
And there is also one game that i assume it cant play with more than 40 FPS avarage even on its absolute minimum settings(Crysis 3 Alpha MP).

And now to answer the quistion.The HD5770 is a decent card but don't expect wonders.It will play most games on their high or medium settings with very satisfiyng frame rates but dont expect wonders.
I've got a HD5770 too and i used to play Skyrim @ 1080P on high settings, highly modded with constant 60 FPS.It looked better than ULTRA for the most part but it required a lot of tweaking and optimisation to get it to work this well.
Basicly you'll be able to play Skyrim on High or Ultra settings and get decent frame rates.And yes you'll be able to play League of Legends on its highest settings with a minimum of 60FPS.
(The HD 7770 is around 30% faster than a HD 5770)

BUT the HD5770 is not worth nearly that much.Currently a new one costs about 74 pounds.

For three pounds more you can buy a HD 7770 which is quite a bit faster.

But if you're looking for something a bit more serious you should look into a GTX 660 which is almost which is almost twice as powerfull as a HD7770.

Or if you're serious about gaming you should look into a HD 7950 which will allow you to play every game except the Witcher 2 and Crysis 3 at maximum settings at your resolution.
It is around 25% faster than a GTX 660.

I LOVE the card, I had one that runs everything, even with eyefinity ( of course I didn't do super games).

But I only spent $100 on it, new.

200 pounds is highway robbery. You should stop being friends with him. lol

Some reading comprehension in this thread might be useful.....

To OP, if your friend is in fact selling you his ENTIRE system with the 5770, then it's a good deal.

I just bought a used 5770 off a friend as a "place holder" in a budget rig I just finished.

I was surprised how well it played Crysis 2 on "very high" settings. (Very smooth) And there's still a good amount of "eye candy" at that level too.

The open CL benchmark on Cinebench 11.5 is actually higher than my GTX 560. (Although my single 560 did better in Crysis 2 even before I went SLI with a second card)
