Sapphire 5750
 
Just saw this.. the Sapphire Vapor X HD 5750 for 184$

is it worth it over the GTX 260...?

cause im getting a Maximus Extreme and its Crossfire and not SLi.. so if i can i'll grab 2 and crossfire if they are worth it for the price

Q6600 OC'ed at what i can
Asus Maximus Extreme
2x 2GB Patriot Viper Xtreme DDR3-1333
eVGA GTX 260 or 2x 5750 Vapor X
Win 7 Ultimate x64

If you need to go crossfire, definately go with the 5770's. The extra 40 bucks will be worth the performance increase. A 260 wouldn't hold a candle to either the 5750 or 5770 crossfire.

Lots of reviews on the net... they all seem one sided on this one.

but let's say 1 vs the other... a GTX 260 vs a 5770 which is better..?

For gaming performance, the 260 edges out the 5770. Read some 5770 reviews. Com'on they are right here at HWC :biggrin:
Folding of course goes to nVidia.

saw that last night.. i'd rather get the XFX Radeon HD 5770 XXX edition.. i like the stock cooler and the speeds are nice..

i'd rather pay 219.99 :P

but yeah

the review puts it more like 3/4 for the GTX and 1/4 for the 5770 so i'll keep the GTX 260 for a while i guess until prices drops down

Why not just get the Vapor-X HD 5770 and overclock is way past the stock XFX XXX edition specs? :thumb:

I've gone this route and am hoping to achieve the speeds many 5770 reviews have claimed which will make it that much better of a value over the "overclocked" XFX XXX Edition.

if your lucky you can price match a 5770 to around 180

i have the reference cooler xfx which is the better cooler besides the vapor x flashed running 1000core and 1445 mem and 1.2 v
