    ATi's benchmark dominating GPUs have been on the market for a while now. The first cards on the market to support DirectX 11 and have a slew of impressive numbers while doing it.

    So, who has one of these next gen cards in their system and how do you like it so far? Happy? Disappointed? Or simply unimpressed?

    I have the 5850 and am somewhat impressed mind you i was running a 4870X2 so it's not the same. I have to say the power management at idle is a major improvement. Everest shows 1.7A draw idle :)

    Interestingly, Everest shows 2.32A for my primary card and 1.16A for the slave card at idle.

    got the 5770 because i'm planning to crossfire (a single 5870 is too expensive and hard to find right now), but right now that i only have 1 i'm a bit disappointed. THe performance increase over the old 4850 it's too little even though crysis is now smoother due to the increase in vram. I also suspect that in single card configuration crysis2 is gonna be hard to play in DX11 but i should have the second card already when it comes out...

    Don't be too disheartened. a single 5770 is pretty capable but in crossfire its a very impressive configuration.

    If I was buying a setup right now, it would probably have two 5770's in it. best value for money card on the market.

    Is this analogous to when AMD/ATi released the 4770 too ?!?

    I've read some articles on this configuration and it seems like a viable option for folks that have the 790FX or X58 Chipset motherboards ;)

    Impressive, but the CPU is a bottle neck. Are you planning to overclock it?

    20% increase is easy with that kind of CPU.

    I'll wait a little more. Hopefully the rumour about better availability at the end of the month will turn out true, and maybe the prices here will drop a bit as a result. I'm itching for a new card, but I know I won't really use its features this month anyway, so won't hurt to wait.

    MSI 5850 and love it, considering I went from A64 3200+ and x800xt to i7 setup. I got my card 2 weeks ago and am surprised how hard they are to find still, glad I got it when I did.

    Waiting to get one, but I'd like to ask someone who's got one how the OpenGL support is. Namely, what are the best settings you can run the Hyperspace screensaver at?
