A friend of mine runs a small computer shop. The other week a customer brought in his son's PC because the graphics card was suspect, and he ended up buying a new 670GTX because his old 5970 wasn't giving a display. So the customer asked us to bin the old card. I ended up taking it home, stripping it and cleaning it, then I put it in the oven for 5 minutes and put everything back together. It booted up and ran Furmark for 30 minutes, peaking around 89 degrees. So far it's been fine. However my current PC is only an e8400. Come September I'll be buying an i5 and OC'ing it to use as my new main PC when I start University. So do you guys think I should sell the 5970 and buy something newer in September or is it worth keeping until then? What current card is equal to a 5970 and how much do they cost?
