    Default New video card

    Ok, i currently have an asus 4870 graphics card i was looking for a second today and realised that they are pretty hard to find know and i could get a 5770 cheaper, i looked at some reveiws and have decided to purhcase a new card at the moment i am thinking of getting a Saphire Vapor-x 5870 is this a good choice? i want to be sure of this before i put out $600+ on a card. My rig is being used for high-def gaming.
    *edit*
    If someone could post some cheap prices in american stores that will ship to australia it would be appreciated.

    The 5770 is called vapor x as i recall but its not at 600$ is way cheaper so i guess you mean the Sapphire Radeon 5870?

    Ok i totally forgot this edition.All i can say is that 5870 is a damn good card and if we talking about directx 11 its the second best card money can buy.Vapor X technology means slightly better cooling which equals with a potential slightly higher overclocking.

    Sapphire has Vapor-X editions of most of their new cards. The 5870 is a BIG jump up from a 4870 though, be sure you need all that horsepower before dropping that amount of cash on a card. If you want the 5870 Vapor-X, I HIGHLY recommend it, runs cool and quiet with some killer horsepower under the hood. Here, have a read:

    Check out those temps compared to the stock card as well, I was very impressed when testing it.
