So the 5700U has stolen the limelight... and rightfully so... it's the flashier big brother of the regular 5700...

BUT...

I just sealed a deal to rid myself of my Radeon 8500 AIW DV... my home theatre PC card... I love it, but I want a little more out of a card than 270/410... :p

SO... I'm gonna have me some cash, and I'll have enough for a 5600 Ultra (I dig em...) OR a 5700 NON Ultra... The test results I've seen show that the 5700 non-U performs on par with the 5600U in most situations, and OUT-performs it in several others...

So, here's what I'm asking:

If you know of a review including the 5700 Non-U, please post it here....

If you know of a place that's selling them in the US, please post a link or something here...

If you have had any experience with this card, please post it here...

I think this card will make a great 8x6 on the TV card... I'll be able to play with PLENTY of AF and AA @ that rez!!!

AFAIK, 5700 Non-U's aren't available yet... hence why there are no reviews.

I have a 5900(SE) and a 5600U, but for helping me with the review, I'm selling the 5600U to goofjb...

Ain't no WAY the 5900 is gonna be my HTPC card... although the ability to play EVERYTHING with 8XAA and 8XAF is certainly tempting...

A 5600u is 170.

Why not get a 5900R?

U can pick one up for 195.

I have my reasons...

I might get one from an IHV for a review, but if I can get one through a reseller faster, then I'll go that way. Like I've said before, I'm wanting to get a 5700NU vs. 5600U review done...

Folks, please, read the thread before just throwing a response down... The "buy ati" cry fell on deaf ears, as did the "buy a 5900"... If you read the whole thread, you'll see why I'm asking what I'm asking...

I know we all want higher post counts, but that's just not the way to go... :rolleyes:

*Post Farms* I'm Sorry, heh I generally try not too reccomend people to buy another thing when they ask for something specific. I just assumed you had a Gainward FX 5900SE.

Chris, you only asked what card I had....

sorry, I get aggravated when people "reccomend people to buy another thing when they ask for something specific"... grrr.... :p

And Dazz... I'd do that if I had a 5700U, but I don't want one... I want an old-skool PCB, TSOP memory, etc... Plus it'd be nice to know how the non-ultra's OC...

You know, Thats really not a bad suggestion at all.

No, y'see, I also want to HAVE a 5700NU as well... I'm fairly confident that they will be nicely priced once thrown into the mix... For my home theatre PC this will be plenty powerful... and a 425/550 card should probably at least OC a little... 440/590? Hmmm.. not too shabby...

Well. I dont think any are currently available. And I think this is for the same reason the Geforce 4 Ti 4200 didnt show up till late, They wanna clear out stock on the old generation, Sad but true.

Hmmm, Kev1, you remember a few months ago? "this 5200 Ultra @ ComputerGate looks like a Great deal!!!" :p:p:p :) heh heh heh...

Somehow :p I have more trust in this particular recommendation... unless of course it's an OEM edition 64 bit memory equipped model... ... but of course newegg wouldn't do such a thing... ComputerGate would...

Thanks for the linky. ;) ... I had to poke at ya for this, you know it... :POKE: :D

NewEgg just listed the MSI 5700 non-ultra too. They must have just got a shipment in. Glad the MSI cards are starting to be released :)

I see they have the MSI 5700 Ultra now too. Its least expensive one at $209 dollars. The MSI card should be awesome :thumbsup:

Interesting thing is, unless that 5900 flicker problem is really bad, it dosen't seem like good thing to buy a 5700 Ultra when the 5900 non ultras are going for less or equal money, and perform way better :rolleyes:

NewEgg is selling the Gainward GFFX 5900 Ultra 1200 for $229 bucks. This is $10 less than the Gainward Ultra 1100 they are selling at $239 dollars: WTF :confused:

If 5700 Ultra and 5900 non ultra are priced the same, which would you buy? I believe the flicker problem would be deciding factor in that purchase.

flicker? This is not mid-July, is it??? Someone pinch me.... :p

I don't think there are flicker issues anymore (this was taken care of in a recent driver release, 43.45 methinks), unless theres ones with certain makes of cards... which I personally do not know of this being the case... I could be wrong... but...
