Very nice cards for the cash. Buy 2 and Xfire them if your board supports it, and you get better performance than a 4890 or 285!!
Probably best bang for buck at the moment.

To make it plain for those who dont know,In order to get this performance you need 2 cards and a motherboard that supports crossfire and you also need a power supply that can handle 2 cards,

There will be hardly any benefit to 2 4770's over 4890 and on bigger displays it will get beaten because of a small frame buffer 128-bit anyone considering crossfiring these would be way better served with a single 4890 as there would be no real difference in performance but in every other aspect its the better card most 4890 cards will reach 950 on core so when OC kill the 4770Xfire challenge and will be cheaper I've seen Powercolour 4890's at £125.

I dont know if you still can but you could pick up 4850's for around thid price which are a faster card with 256 frame buffer.

New ATI cards reportedly out soon (5 series).

Yea, DX11 too. Starting at $300 though, so not really in this price range for a while...

Aparently the 4770's are very overclockable, and the reviews I have read 2x4770 kill a 4890 on 1650x1080 .. can't get to the madshrimps site atm (damn work firewall !)

Hi djfluff, heat left (can't leave any more rep yet!).

You helped me last time this was on offer -
'Oooo ! they were nice boards. This will take one of the 4770's But not 2
(It's a sli board, so you can put 2 Nvidia cards on it, but you would probably need to upgrade your power supply at the same time ...)

I would say go for it ! it would provide a nice cheep upgrade for you, and you will be able to play any game on the market (maybe not at max everything) . I would highly reccomend getting a memory upgrade too.
If you are getting from ebuyer : ebuyer.com/cat…MHz
It uses DDR Ram, and you should match it with the speed of memory you have allready. Check to see if you have DDR-333 or DDR-400. If you have 2x512MB allready, buy another 2. If you have 1x1Gb buy another 1.'


I didn't get around to it before the price went up, but will do now. However, it looks from the cpuz.txt that I have 2x512MB, but 200mhz. Could that be right? If so, should I replace those 2 with 2x1Gb DDR-400?

It's a little confusing, but your RAM, allthough it says 200mhz, actually runs at 400mhz when you have a pair (that's what DDR stands for)

Personally, unless you were planning on getting a new system soon, I would buy another matched pair of 512MB dimms. Make sure they have a CAS of 3, to match your existing ones. Sonething like : ebuyer.com/pro…296 . Your board does have 4 memory slots, of I recall..

The madshrips review you posted completely contradicts your claim that 2 x 4770's would be beaten by a single 4890 on bigger displays...


Anyway, deal is expired as the price has gone up again, as per usual with ebuyer.
