technicly it should be 1.4 gigs of ddr5

1.5...Good points all the above,but when taking in concideration of what you said i think i might just tkae the 5870 and next year i will look at the 6000 series,but for now i need a card this week,so its gotta be the 5870,but if i am gonna replace it anyway i can get the 5850 black edition for about 600 rands cheaper.If i slap another 300 rand with the saved 600 i can get a nother 6 gig a second black hardrive 1TB.....

Check this link XFX HD 5850 Review Page 14 - Testing: 3DMark 06 - Overclockers Club and just click on the site at the bottem on nr 14-3d mark06,there you will see the difference in performance between the 5870 and 5850 black edition is not more than 300 in the scores,and on 3d mark vantage the 5850 black edition beats the 5870....even if its just by a few.My point is the 5870 is better at some scores,but i save allot on the 5850 black edition,it is on promotion....you see my dilemma?

I see your dilima I also mentioned if you oc'ed a 5850 or a 6870 you might match the 5870 all together

It's just a matter of adjusting the clock the big difference between the two is the stream processors

Well i was reading a bit on the 6800 gpu the 6870 requires a 2x6 pin adapter i saw that as a problem but i could also buy a adapter cable to fix the situation which would allow me the 2x6 pin

for the life of me i don't know why they changed the pwer situation it would be like running two gpu's and it is only 1 how wierd is that

It requires more power because it's ~40% faster/more powerful vs your HD 5770.

FWIW my 4890 has those same requirements

These cards are getting more and more powerful thus they require more and more juice.

Sometime down the road you'll want a power supply with multi PCI-E connectors for the card as I've seen some recommendations against using adapters. On the flip side, some cards come with the adapters, mine did.

Check to site to see if your card does as well. Most places will list what's in the box.

And to be honest a lot of mid to high end cards will require this multi PCI-E power connection anyway so it helps to have a power supply that already has them.

BTW the card that I have is an XFX 4890 and as you can see, it shipped with two adapters.

Thanks for the info originally i was going to buy a new psu anyway i already had my eye on a 750w with 4 pci e connectors and a couple 4 pins if im not mistaken i could use a 4pin and 2 to make a 6 right ?

anyway i am running a cool max 600w supply which i got only cause i needed 1x6 pin i wasn't thinking crossfire or anything kinda thought one gpu is good enough vs two if you get a good one

so on to my point when i did a search just to see if it was possible to just adapt the 6 pin i thought g quick fix but honestly by next year sometime i will have built a whole new rig and this current one i am on going to the upstairs 42 inch vizio for the same thing im doing in me and my wife's room 2 monitor link and hd movie surrond sound entertainment for her and the little one
games for me

I pretty much have a few plans in the works and would like to share sooner or later
