    bump....I think whether directly or indirectly, I've apparently sold everyone a 5870 on TPU. I might actually have to put these things up on craigslist.com!!!

    I wish I could use an ATI card when they are sold at this price :( Darwin, is there even a chance of you ever putting up some Nvidia hardware or do you deal exclusively with ATI GPUs?

    Yeah, seems like I'm kinda biased towards ATI doesn't it? Not going to lie, I really am. It's actually a good question though. I'm doing a lot of test. The stuff I've been focusing on is the ATI stuff in custom rigs. I'm done with that and as such, selling off those items. We're working on the new nVidia GPU's now (470, 480, Fermi's). But it'll be another 6 months before I'm ready to start releasing them.

    I've already sold the last batch of nVidia test subjects (280's, 285's, and 295's) which I actually really liked. I think that there's is a 285 left on my for sale thread too.

    Welcome to TPU smok3d!

    All of the 5870's are beasts. To be honest the 285 is a great card also. Can't lose with any of em,but the 5870's will give you DX11 if you have windows 7!!

    *Could you fill in your system specs that way more people can possibly give you better advice depending on what you have for a computer!
    Darwin96 and smok3d say thanks.

    Honestly, with the refernce cards, it's all about cosmetics. They are all built to the same specs. IE: Which one is prettier to you? There is someone attached to this thread who won't buy anything until the right color scheme is available...not saying any names but...<cough>...I'm sure he'll see this thread. :)

    The main difference is warranty stuff. XfX has a double lifetime warranty where you can put the warranty in your name and pass it to someone else if you sell it. The saphire, I think, is a 2 year warranty.

    IMPO, historically, Saphire has had a better product over the years. But when it comes to referenced 5870's, you're good no matter what you do. They're one of the best video cards for the money in quite some time. I love the freaking things. I have a rig that was a quad crossfired 5870 setup in it. Yes it's over kill, but it's just so sexy! About half the people on this thread have purchased 5870's from me and I haven't heard one single complaint yet. :cool:

    The non-referenced card is great if you want to run water cooling to your GPU's. It has an open case and easy to take apart. The reference cards aren't the easiest/safest to take apart. I hear that the non-referenced are easier to overclock too.
