I've got a 20 dollar off coupon from newegg that expires feb. 28th so I'm looking to shift from nvidia (as I've had nothing but troubles with the SLI) and get a single card with bunches of power. I'm not big into overclocking gpus as I've never done it and I'm afraid to as I am not by any means an expert, but if it's real easy then I'd be up for trying. I just don't want to go into crossfire for the same reason I'm selling my SLI set up. I'm not a fan of 2 weaker cards, I'd rather have 1 big guy that can handle it all. My only uses for the card are gaming too so I'm not sure if the performance difference for gaming will be noticeable between the cards? If they are please let me know! If I did go with the 5870 it would be the vapor x because I like how it looks and I like the cooler Thanks for your tips!
