just depends on you're set up my card works beautifull but im going to upgrade a new gpu soon so ill have to retest temps the highest my gpu has ever gone was 81c due to a vigorous stress test but other then that the max i seen besides the stress test was 55-65c which is not bad for playing games most of the day when im off work

Just for perspective, anything over about 85C (for a gaming card) is getting a little high.

Also, my 260GTX idles at around 40C, load (stress test) at around 71.

I've seen and read about the new cards getting up in the 90's, especially the FEMI's

I can tell you that my 4890 idles around 61ish, down from 67ish -Lowered GPU temps by 6 degrees!. Those high idle temps aren't unusal for that card.

Thanx all,sygnus21 i checked the link you added on your last post and saw the temps were low for that card and the performance seems to be real good,better then my current gtx 285.And the power usage is allso great.But i still wonder about the cuda and physx of nvidia,but the 5870 seems to have higher mhz ect than even the 480,the 480 only wins in memory.Its bad that the 5870 only has 1gig memory...

I don't think that 1 gig of memory will be an issue. There have been no compliants in that area.

Good point. The FERMI series runs hot, I know. I don't know about the ATI cards though.

Like I said, If I were you, I'd wait till ~ mid November for Cayman (the cards that are supposed to replace HD 5850 and HD 5870).

According to AMD, these cards will be the real deal (HD 6950 and HD 6970).

While the advice above is solid, there are two things to consider here...

1- Availability.... Will you be able to get one of the new cards. There has been issues in the past with availability... which leads to the second consideration....

2- Pricing.... Considering the price of the 5870, are you willing to pay the asking price these new cards.... especially if they're in short supply?

Personally I'd wait till after the new year, than see how things pan out. But.... if you can't wait, and need a new card now, you could go with the 5870, or get something cheaper to tide you over till you decide on the newer 6000 series.

My two cents.

All good points.

Availability MIGHT be an issue with these cards (I don't think it will but, who knows), but price definitely won't.

If the HD 6970 debuts at a much higher price than that of the HD 5870 (very much likely), there's still the HD 6950 to look after. Which everyone believes will sport similar to superior performance baseline vs HD 5870 @ a similar price.

Either way, It's a win-win situation for the OP.
