Impressive Crossfire results, and low power consumption (16W Idle 86W Peak!!) . Mmmm !

So tempted; great deal voted hot!

Link seems to be to 512MB version.

that is cheap and having them in crossfire would look badass

good deal this, half tempted to get one for my htpc

Yea, ur right. The 1GB version is £30 more. Details ammended. (Just grabbed them from the XFX site. Strangely XFX have 1GB in the description of this part number, even though it's listed as 512MB.)

Personally I'm still trying to decide between a HD5850 or a 4890. I know the 4890 isn't DX11 and uses more power, but it is around £80 cheaper atm and the performance difference isn't massive in most games at 1920x1200 until you bump up the AA and AF. Choices, Choices...

Tell me about it! I have a 4870 ATM, and trying to decide should I go crossfire, or DX11 or :thinking:

as a 4890 owner im not sure id recomend on right now... the idle power use is somewhere in the region of 60W.... and above all the standard cooler is stupidly loud when youre playing any game

two 4770s in crossfire would be a lot of bang for buck right now (£58 per card on ebuyer last time i checked) ... or a 5770 which is around £120...

I wouldnt be too worried about DX11 as there wont be too many games that support it for a while yet

That's a great card - voted hot. Personally holding out until the new year, got too many presents to buy people at the moment!

Can this card really drive three displays? If so in what configuration?

I think it's dual DVI + DisplayPort which is limiting. Not 100% so check the reviews.

Would this be noisy during normal (not in-game) running conditions?

Looks so good, whats the minimum psu ?

This is a nice card at a nice price - I picked up the 1 GB version for £102 delivered a couple of weeks back from micro direct, but they are now out of stock: microdirect.co.uk/Hom…DVI

Depends on what other components you have. For a non extreme desktop a decent quality 300W would be fine.

it has two dvi's, one hdmi and 1 displayport, you can use upto a comibination of 3 at anyone time. so its future proofed with displayport. I recommend going for a 5770 for around £120ish then when funds allow add another to get crreamy goodness. low power comsumption, also in cf the performance is similar to the 5870 which would be around £30 more, plus you get to output to 6 monitors/tv's

Your right though, this is definately htpc material, also potentially the gpu can be passively cooled.

Is this card good for gaming ?

It will very likely be fine although check that your power supply has a 6 pin PCIe power adapter which this card needs. If not you can use a molex to PCIe power adapter which should come with the card but if your Dell is fairly modern it may well not have any molex power connectors. In that case it gets a bit unwieldy as you’d need two SATA to Molex power adapters and then use the Molex to PCIe adapter. See eBay item number 390081000088 for an example of the former.

Yes but probably only for resolutions up to 1680x1050.

1 of those 3 has to use the DisplayPort output though.

[QUOTE=Agharta;6909046]1 of those 3 has to use the DisplayPort output though.[/

im sure you can use a hdmi output to a monitor, although displayport isn;t widely available, more and more monitors are starting to have them, for example dells 27" and 30" range. Also you could buy an adapter from displayport to hdmi/dvi

I would rather crossfire two 5770's. Jsut need to wait for the price to drop a little more

would this sit nicely in my dell vostro 200?

low power psu (300w) but seems to say here it only suck 85w at max???

not techno - help please!

It doesn't have a PCIe power connector so you'd need to buy some adapters; see my previous post on this issue.
The other question is how long is the card and does it fit in yor case. No idea!

The reference design for this card is 8.5" but this could well be shorter judging by the photos on XFX's website.

]This says you need 450W psu or 600W if running in Crossfire mode.

Hope that helps!

They're just covering themselves because there are plenty of shoddy P/Ss that don't deliver what they say on the tin. A decent quality 300W is fine.

Manufacturer`s state psu for 1 reason and 1 reason alone.....for the product`s to function correct and with the highest safety standards.
Now if you think a Quality 300 Watt psu is fine for this product then That`s fine ,it`s your opinion, but don`t state it`s fine to other`s, as this will give them a false scene of security .
When there system starts playing up in a few months or even worse goes BANG! and they loose everything, for using an underpowered psu , would you say it was fine then?
By far the most problematic causing componant in the PC is due to PSU ,if you get this wrong , then your nightmares are just about to begin.

Which is why I suggested using a quality power supply in the first place. :thumbsup:
A quality power supply if underrated for the task in hand will gracefully shut itself down and not damage the system. Whereas a poorly designed P/S that is rated for a higher wattage might well cause problems.

If you’d read the spec of the Dell PC in question which has a 300W P/S you’d realise that when adding this card to it the total load would rarely if ever hit more than 150 - 175W DC. A decent spec 300W P/S can handle that easily.
Even a Core i7 Bloomfield rig is only pulling about 200W DC with this card.

According to Xbitlabs this card only pulls about 44 – 61W maximum in practice.

Exactly, it’s my opinion just as you also have an opinion. It’s up to others to decide whose opinions to take on board as that’s their responsibility and not yours.

No, they are just very conservative and have to cover all bases. e.g. a heavily over-clocked Phenom II is a power hog so if you had one of those with 4 HDDs, TV card etc AND you over-clocked this GPU then even a 'quality' 300W P/S would not cut it.
But when you read between the lines and don't just take things at face value you see that for the person that asked who had a Core 2 Duo in a basic system that 300W is easily enough if it's of decent quality. Believe me or not, the facts are out there if you look beneath the surface.

I'm fascinated by the debate and almost ashamed to ask this question...

The man reason for wanting to upgrade is that I have returned to flight sims having bought Flight Sim x. I 'm fed up of most shooters at the moment though that is not to say if I find a recent game out there it will not take my fancy - I guess though middle age has something to do with it!

My current card an x1300 pro seems to do a job with flight sim x so i don't expect any card upgrade on this particular software will require the max out of the card (and thererfore I assume not the max wattage?).

I'd love though to connect to my 37 inch tv via hdmi and get a full screen flight sim - does the card pull more watts to output via hdmi to a large lcd tv? Will my paltry 300 watt handle it in your opinion. I will though probably get a half decent upgrade to 450 watts or more in the long term.

Scuse my lame knowledge again - nearly bought the card tonight but thought i would chip in one more time. At least I'm learning something!
