Anyhow, I'm pleased with the 5770 thus far. I'll, hopefully, better test it out once I'm back from visiting my folks.
I just nabbed a gtx 460 from amazon for 169.99 with no tax and free shipping.
The deals are out there.....

I know you can't afford it, and if I were spending my own cash on a bang for the buck card today, it would be the GTX 460. I'd grab one and shoot for 850 on the core with Afterburner. The MSI Cyclone card can likely OC to that level and stay around 61C load. At least techPowerUp! was able to do that with one.

For folks that can spend 225usd on a GPU, go with that and manually OC it. You won't be sorry.

If they bother with the rebate, it's 205usd.

BTW if you want extra push from your 5770 try OCing with the same tool, MSI's Afterburner.
I agree. With your current cash flow Redeemed, it makes no sense to be looking at lateral moves on video cards or even upgrades like the 460.

Buy some steaks and vegetables with the cash, health>>>>>>>running AA.

It should and it may not. Still try it if you wish. It won't hurt.

I love that tool. I use it on my 470s.

BTW, I was not suggesting you ditch your 5770 for a 460. I was stating what I would have done if I were on a much older card and wanted a bang for the buck upgrade. If I did have an old card and were buying today to replace it, I'd be looking at; the GTX 470, HD 5850 or GTX 460 1Gb. I'd manually overclock them to the max, then back off about 10MHz. Currently that price range is 220usd to 280usd. The 470 and 5850 are remarkably close, separated by about 20usd. 260 vs 280.

Thanks Blacklash! I may give that a go just for the heck of it. However, so far this 5770 has been everything I need.

And I hear ya'- that GTX460 was *really* tempting. But right now I need to save as much money as possible... even if it means sacrificing a little image quality.

Understood. Been there done that.

On a side note, Rollo brought up food. I know a few fellows who piss away a good deal of cash by eating out instead of preparing their own meals. If they chose to do that for a month they could likely grab a decent video card with the cash saved. The kicker is the homemade meals are often more healthy too.

I couldn't tell you the last time I ate at a restuarant, or had fast food.

Round here, everything's homemade.

I eat (or carryout) a meal at a restaurant about once a day. I was mainly concerned about a guy on survival cash talking about video card upgrades.

(or side grades in the case of the 450)
