    Ordered myself an XFX HD5870 XXX the other day. Paid too much for it too. [​IMG]

    Damn you boxing day sales and not having time to check prices w/ other sites.

    Using EVGA GTX 280 1GB @ 729/1512/2592 MHz so I'm in no need for a new card atm, I've planned to camp for some refreshed series of Fermi maybe sth like 8800GT was compared to 8800 GTX/GTS cards or until GTX 360 would get cheaper as I don't pay more than like 300€ max for a gfx card. Need to go nvidia route due to ATI having problems with 120Hz LCDs so far.

    I have already chosen - GTS250. I will probably also get GT300 when it comes out, skipping 58xx.

    I am still a little miffed with Nvidia for buying, then killing Uli chipsets. and it is just simpler to use ATI drivers with all the other ATI cards I have. Currently I only have a Nvidia XFX 6800GS and Nvidia 6150 onboard video and they are good parts, but I have a dozen ATI cardswith the pride of the fleet an aging MSI 3870.

    I believe I will buy a 5870 as they near replacement.... I want a DX11 part.

    Sell most if it. Ended up canceling the order for the HD5870 though. I want something to fold w/. And ATI cards are awful at that.

    I've waited last year for the release of the radeon 5700 series card and grabbed a Radeon 5770. It may be slower than competing directX 10 cards but at least it's got low power consumption.

    No. I sell them on Canadian hardware forums generally.

    Waiting for PCI-Express 3 to come out. By then, USB 3 and SATA 3 will be de-facto standards, too, so I get to build a whole new machine :)

    I bought a Sapphire 5770 last month, it was all I could afford with DX11 and moderately reasonable performance

    Chuck another one in there in a few months and you've got yourself a beast :evil::evil:



    I suppose I haven't added mine yet... Bought a Sapphire VaporX 5870 about a month back. It's been great so far.. ;)

    I am thinking that I might get a 5770 later , just to see how much better is DX11.

    For the most part, I didn't notice the difference between my 4870 -> 5870 in BFBC2. Except for the higher settings and frame rates...

    End of this school term I might grab another DX11 game :)
