  • 5770 anyone?

    I'm thinking about upgrading my video card, since my birthday is coming up and I want to be able to play BC2.

    I'm looking at the ATI 5770, anyone who uses it now want to chime in?

    Thanks.

      I just got my 5770 today, along with all my other parts. I'll give you a report as soon as I get it all assembled and gaming. :)

        I have the 5750 and it is fine for everything I play. Even did the demo of ArmA II ok

          I'm probably going to have to upgrade my PSU along with it, budgets around $500. Cheap, I know.

            I replaced a dead card with one in my MAD 5600+ with 4GB of RAM and I love it. Great card for the money.

              Great card, just make sure that you have a 'newer' motherboard... I picked up the 5770 to go with my current rig, and despite having a PCI-E and other listed requirements the Crossfire 3200 Chip-set on my motherboard is just too old to support for the 5000 series. :(

              Everything else is fine (2.4 duel core, 3 GB memory etc), just not the chip-set...

                Well, I'm not sure what to say about this card. When it works, it's amazing. I can play ANYTHING I throw at it with all the settings maxed out with high resolutions. CoD: MW2 looks amazing. HOWEVER, I learned that there has been a common problem effecting those of us with 5xxx cards. The gray screen of death. Whenever I play games other than CoD, at random times, usually only a couple minutes in, the screen goes gray or sometimes black, and the computer seems totally locked up. Even Tomsharware had a write-up about it. It's been pissing me off, and I'm trying desperately to find a solid fix before I RMA the stupid thing. ATI better get on the ball with a decent driver update. Grrrrrrr.

                  Well, after days of research and trying to resolve the issue, I gave up on this card. I RMA'd it, and am going to order a 5830 instead. For some reason, CoD:MW2 ran BEAUTIFULLY! Max settings and all. But on older games, such as HL2, Doom 3, and WoW (the one I play the most!), I'd get the gray screen of death after about 2 minutes of play. This problem is widespread, and seems to particularly effect those of us with Win 7 64-bit. Super frustrating. I need my WoW fix! So would I suggest the card? Perhaps. It's a helluva a card for the money, BUT you're taking a bit of a gamble with it until they release new drivers. Perhaps a 5750 might work better. Just don't order the Gigabyte brand POS card I got. Horrible heat sink/fan setup, and low quality. Sometimes I guess you get what you pay for. If you go with the 5770, spend the extra $10-20 to get a better quality card.
