Windows 7: Windows 7 with Radeon HD 5770

Win 7 Ultimate 64bit Signature Edition
 
 

After two months of trying to get the 5770 (Sapphire) to run stable on my Win 7 (64bit) machine, I decided to RMA for a refund. I tried 2 cards, first one crashed my machine constantly and the other was fine for 3weeks than started to random reboot my machine. It was a great card when it worked, but I will wait till more stable drivers have been worked before I even consider a ATI again. The last time I had an ATI card was the 9700 pro back in the day and it worked fine.

After almost a week with the GTX275, I'm happy to report no problems whatsoever. I have been editing and rendering AVCHD 1920x1080 without a glitch, and the h/w acceleration (nVidea Cuda) seems to be working well.

I might have to go get a decent game and try stressing it a bit... MWF2?

Regarding price, I'm now seeing the online retailer I used has a much higher price for this card, and it's also out of stock... I guess I got lucky! Also of note - the EVGA version of the GTX275 features a "Limited Lifetime" warranty. Hopefully I won't need it, but it sounds good...

Unfortunately, this has left me with a bad impression of ATI. I'm fairly sure that they will eventually have better drivers for this card, but I couldn't wait for them.

At the price of that 275, you could have gone for a 4890 - probably cheaper too.

4890s are going for ~$200 nowadays, much more cheaper than any GTX 275 out there right now (and not that far performance-wise).

But still...

A 275 for ~$240 is a pretty sick deal.

Sapphire HD5700 Vapor-X here with x64 Win7 and Catalyst 9.12 suite w/hotfix installed over it. So far so good after getting it installed (dual-boot x86 Vista with Win7).

Hmm since ive read so many bad things about the 5770 Im happy I decided to buy a 250 GTS instead. Works very well and never had a problem except for two that was easily fixed by auto-adjusting my monitor!

I had the Sapphire Vapor-X 5750, that had these problems. My RMA is supposed to come in tomorrow. We'll see how it works out.
