No I just purchased a XFX 5770 back in January I am good for a few years I hope.
nope, still getting gtx 460's
ive never had driver problems with any of my video cards from 7600 GT, 8600 GT and HD 5770, so I wouldnt mind investing in the 6XXX series if the upgrade is worth it.
I'm planing on a completely new build. Sandy Bridge and Bart XT
Currently buying parts for my new pc and I am just about to purchase a EVGA GTX460 card so no not a fan of ati and AMD. its not a good look for ati to have been bought out by amd.
im sorry but after amd bought ati, they captured most of the gpu market. Ati would have gone bankrupt without AMD buying them out. You obviously have no idea about the success of the 5XXX series that have sold over 25 million gpus and totally annihilated Nvidia till the release of the gtx 460(awesome card), heck ati is probably still selling more cards than nvidia. Also for the noobs 6850 and 6870 are replacing the 5750 and 5770.
My 4850 is still going strong, maybe a 7000 or 8000 series in a few years. I don't plan on upgrading my Core 2 Quad until at least 22nm manufacturing process and 8 or 16 cores, it has served me well and has not been a limiting factor yet.
Nothing my 4850 and 4870 with a quad core can't handle at the moment.
I see no reason to upgrade.
Forgot to add, I might go back to NVIDIA depending on what the situation. I only went with the 4850 because it was such a bargain at the time, the current graphics cards are way more expensive than I usually go for.
I hope to if they aren't like 700 dollars (my graphics card range is 2-3 hundred) I'd like to though :(
I came across a good sum of money recently, a good sum for me sense I'm in the working poor class in the US is around 1000$, and am very tempted to get another 5870, or a GTX470.
I already bought a 5870 manufactured from HIS, and it preformed around 2 fps better then my 5750 in Borderlands, and Crysis; in which I think my computer is better calibrated better for a 5750 sense I'm running a Phenom x4 2.4ghz, and ddr2 800 4 gigs with a 850w psu.
I am sending it back to Newegg because HIS proclaimed it was damaged if it was running that slow. So I'm not certain if I'm going to just hold on to my money, and blow it on a 6000 series card.
Oh and any consolation on the speed of my computer vs the power of the card I'm getting if I'm not bottlenecking it by an insane amount would be okay. I might try to get new cpu mb, and ram if this is indeed a problem. I'm not very tech savvy right now sense the processors got way cheaper, way faster at the time I purchased the 2.4 ghz phenom 2, and sense the ram went to ddr3 as a standard at the time I got that amd 2+ processor, instead of amd 3. So I felt a little screwed over at the time I bought that, and updated my system.
I think i will stick with my pair of maxout/overclocked EVGA 9500GT 1GB SLI cards for a little bit longer, and wait for a small price drop on an Nvidia GTX460, and then add another one in SLI down the road, when funds permit me to do so, as I have had good luck with Nvidia the past few years in my desktop systems, and I will be putting the 9500GT cards in my backup guest computer, when I upgrade, as it only has an 8600GS 512mb, which for now, is good enough for web surfing, light graphics work, and some older games and emulators, when I have family over with kids. ;)
I have had to many issues in the past with driver issues with ATI. Especially on Intel based mobo's. I'll stick with the much more stable nVidia cards.
probably not. had too much "fun" with ati drivers.
so does this mean the prices for 5850 and 5870 will enter the "budget" range?
That would be helpful in my case
yes im gonna buy it but first i have to see how fast they are so any review is welcome :)
Ati/AMD Gfx new cards prob wont be much better then the current ones im sticking to Nvidia for now i like drivers that work flawlessly
I blew all my money on a 5850 :D
Call me pedantic and stupid if you wish, but I stick with Nvidia products, they've always served me faithfully (with zero bugs). The one time I tried an AMD card it was such a hassle to get it working correctly and not screwing up my display.
I just believe in product loyalty I guess.
Meant to log in, that is my comment about the GTX 470s in SLI. Because of the rebadging of the 40nm process, we won't see a two fold improvement, at least from the HD 6870 & HD 6850 that are about to come out. What is out now handles most everything anyways, so the setback isn't too severe.
I have two GTX 470s in SLI. HD 6xxx series, which is a rebrand, is useless to me.
the 6xxx series is not a rebrand for all interested, it has much better tessellation properties than that of the 5xxx series. Also the 6850/6870 are not substitutes for a 5850/5870, they are more for the 5750/5770 range. Wait for the 6900's if you want a real boost.
I'll be waiting for Radeon HD 7670. :)
maybe i got to see how it performs first who knows maybe the 6000 series will fail but i mean i never doubted amd before and nvidaia is kinda slow making gpus
Nope. Just got a 460 not too long ago. It'll most likely last me 2-3 years.
If it's better than the competition, and has 2+ GB memory, then I'll definitely get one. Reason I haven't bought this generation DX11 is there's no good 2GB support and my card is struggling at 1GB atm.
I may buy one, but I know nothing about them and i don't buy anything blind no matter who makes it.
Also, make the 6990 destroy two 5970s in quadfire!
AMD, make the 6950 outperform the 5970!
Sorry, I meant the 6970 (the fastest single GPU card).
Maybe one or two 6970s (the successor to the 5870) or a 6990 (the successor to the 5970), but not any of the 68xx cards (successors to the 57xx cards), which are going to be released first. I really need to see benchmarks first, as well as the thing that I really hope AMD gets right, the CrossFire scaling.
I will skip the 6000 series because I got a 5870 and I think it'll do well enough for my taste untill the 7000 series comes out.
Nope. I'm very happy with my GTX 480. I might not even buy a Kepler product. I'll probably stick with this until Maxwell is released.
Nope. I will keep with my HD 5850 which is fast enough to run for a while when the HD 7xxx series come out.
plz guys don't forget that the names have changd hd 6850 is the replaces the hd5770 (the name is abouth the chips die size ) so the real strong gpus codenamed cayman come out in November so this is the mainstream that comes out in October (i just want to warn you guys)
i selected other because i will not buy a new gpu before there is a shrink to 28 or 22 nm or so
No, the 6850 actually replaces the 5750, and the 6870 the 5770.
If i sell my HD5850, i will probably buy an hd6850!
The HD 6850 is going to perform worse than the HD 5850, my guess would be somewhere between the HD 5770 and the HD 5830.
If i sell my HD5850, i will probably buy an hd6850!
If those are fast enough... Currently i have HD5970+HD5850 in trifirex.
I've got already an Sapphire Radeon HD5870 Vapor-X, and although it's a very good card, it was a bit... expensive... So I will skip the 6000 series and wait for the AMD Southern Islands GPU. The Northern Islands are a bit of a 5000 series refresh, a little improvement but not world shocking...
No, I only bought my 5870 a few months ago and i'm pleased with the performance. I don't see the need for any more. Theres no new crysis type games on the horizon to change that either since crysis 2 is being optimised for consoles its not exactly going to be as otp as the original.
I got a HD4890 vapor-x (great card by the way) for a great deal, wondering why. Two weeks later it's announced windows 7 will have direct x 11 built in. Arrrgghh.
So I'll probably wait a little while and see whether the hd6XXX series release drops the price of the 5XXX series, or if the hd6XXX's turn out to be Way better than the 5XXX than I might have to go for one of them.
It seems the turn around from direct x 9 to direct x 10 to direct x 11 and one video card series to the next to the next has really sped up. Too fast for me, (Or maybe I'm just to broke to keep up)
P.S. gonna try and keep to the single card though, this cross-fire SLI stuff is wacky.
hm... i didnt even know they were coming out so fast xD maybe, gonna build a gaming pc in about 3 weeks so idk maybe the prices on 5000 series will drop ;]
I got a new 5000 series a few months back and i'm happy with it. So i'll stick to this one
ii ahd so many problems with ati i am never going back
I need to see benchmark first before I can decide. I already have two HD 5870 in crossfire.
I've switched to a Mac :P, I used to build and overclock systems as a hobby, but I'm focusing on my web design work, so no I will not be getting one, but I am looking forward to the benchmarks and stuff
I already have an nVidia card
Depending on the feature and price on 6000 serie on realeas does i maybe consider getting one, since im happy for my 5770 x 2 CF setup atm
