Dont wait , it will be a huge upgrade from your 2900pro
Just go and grab that sucker.
I love my 5870.
i also love ATI but i dont know
What is there not to know, go get it!
Get the 5870 if you don't know
I would wait. Nvidia will be releasing there's soon and this might help to drop the price. It is not like they are going anyplace and they will only get better from here.
Soon as of when?
Soon as of tomorrow?
Or soon as of next year?
Technology always get better, you can wait for the GT300 while I can wait for the 6870.
The point is all nVidia has now is a jack sawed card. No launch day, no price, no shit.
go for the 5850 now and play games while the nvidiots wait for the ceo to show an actual working product
Nice one W1zzard!
fanboyism from wizz
On topic 5850 has best price/performance IMO. For NV to show up with with card in that price range that is not going to be any time soon. So I`m for go and buy your self a present .
2900 PRO > 5850 is a HUGE upgrade, but consider getting the 5870 instead might be worth it in the long run
They gave more cards to test at launch this time.
If you grab a 5 series ATi I suggest getting an aftermarket cooler at the same time. I believe there is software voltage control available for a higher OC with adequate cooling. And buy one with a decent warranty. Thats my advice, take it or leave it.
i think you should get an ATI 5850 or 5870 too,nvidia just re-brand the same card with same name
this has nothing to do with fanboyism. if nvidia has launched an amazing product and amd's ceo showed some vaporware i'd say the same. i believe in price/performance (performance being more than just fps)
really? cause im pretty sure the GT300 is COMPLETELY diffirent from the GT200 cards.....
Lol .... check his specs:
GeForce GTX 260 896 MB
Funny though r9 Haha
I say go for it now. I'm considering it also .... after next pay day.
tbh .. if i somehow get an extra hd 5850 (the one i'm reviewing now has to go sit in a corner waiting to be rebenched) i'd switch my main pc to 5850 in no time. card is low power, quiet, powerful
but oh ze noes! i can't convert my porn to iphone so i can watch in the bus .. it doesnt support cuda / badaboom.
W1zz u crazy. Sigged.
i will pick up a 5850 when dx11 games actually hit the selves but untill then im sticking with a 4890
Iv got mine on order. Stupid powercolor keep pushing the date back that it gets to overclockers.co.uk
With any luck i should have one next week.
Upgrading myself from a 2900XT (Pro in disguise)
Id say go with it. You can never keep waiting and waiting the tech world.
OMG ... thats a great idea!
*scampers off to convert porn*
i need s-video what i can do?
get it man, no sense waiting if you feel you need an upgrade, 5850's would be my pick at the mo.
