5770 card

Postby DL13 » Sat Dec 05, 2009 8:24 pm

Hi, Would it be worth having a 5770? I'm on a budget and I wanted to treat my self for Xmis and I was thinking of upgrading to a 5770 from a 4870 and latter on buy another one to crossfire. Or should I wait till the prices come down (how ever long that will be)? :-k

I'm not a fan of stepping-stone upgrades... the price to return ratio is almost always not worth it in the long run, maybe get an SSD or just keep an upgrade stash for Q1 2010?

Q1 you say, by Feb Mar I'll have my tax return I could get a better card then. The size of an SSD I want cost to much, thou I do want a Raid set up I might do that.
