cool i might have to try this
oh and i noticed that your graphics card says 'trying to find a 5850 in au'.
go to http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?tab=new&cPath=416.
its pccasegear's new products page. refresh that page and their 5850 page and you may get lucky. a few ago i managed to help my friend get his hands on an xfx 5850 oc'd edition.
no mod necessary to run an nvidia card on a ati CF rig at the very moment you use forceware 185.68...for the later drivers: yes!
sold out there as well , doesnt matter i got an MSI 5770 today and ill get another in a couple of weeks, thanks anyway
Prolimatech Unveils MK-13 Multi-VGA Coole
Looks like this will wipe the floor with any other cooler gonna get one for my 5770 lol
Finally joined the 5770 club after upgrading from my much loved Powercolor HD 3870 XT 512mb card. I shall miss you but new gaming horizons now await.
Just thought I'd say hello. Hello.
Great stuff mate, that should be a great step up in performance
Thanks. It does seem a great card, just a shame current drivers don't seem to be doing it any real justice.
Next time you get a black screen, try removing your monitor cable from the back of the card and then reconnect it..
Let me know if that works
Hey chaps ... just built a new machine and joined the ATI side of the fence with a 5770 after many years of Nvidias (had one ATI in the past, but a looooong time ago) ... well TBH I am currently "visiting" and if I like it I will stay and maybe buy a 2nd 5770, else I will return to my 2x8800GT's in SLI
Currently finding a couple of annoying issues which may just be with the 9.11 drivers, I dunno, not had much time to test others ... but I would be happy to hear if anyone else has or had either of these issues and found a way around them:
System specs: 1x Sapphire 5770, Intel i5 750, Gigabyte P55-UD6, Gskill PC3-16000 Ripjaws 2000MHZ DC, Corsair HX750W PSU, 2 x 500GB WD Caviar Black, all boxed in a lovely Coolermaster HAF932, 2 x Samsung 226BW Monitors running in dual view @ 1680x1050. All at stock speeds (that will change once I have my new H50 watercooler in place ). Win 7 64 Ultimate RC (build 7100) - that will soon change to Win 7 Pro.
Issue 1. ANY speed of overclock I try causes an annoying flickering on my 2nd monitor (whilst running normal 2d/desktop/windows apps), esp visible when min/maximising windows or apps. Returning to stock speeds solves the issue immediately
Issue 2. I mainly run driving/racing sims/games, and with no overclock in Simbin's Race On, I get some occasionaly flickering of the screen, and then objects in the distance or on the horizon like trees flicker with a hard cartoon style edge.
If these issues are purely driver related, then I might stick around with this card, else if not, its going in to my wife's machine and I will return to my Nividias for a bit longer irate:
(BTW ... not done a direct test between the two - like I said, time is currently short so would appreciate any help on this I can get :nerd
just got my sapphire (asus bios) 5770 up to 1010mhz core 1351mhz memory at 1.275 volts fully stable, anyone reckon I could push higher without trouble or have I hit my max?
I only ask because Ive never pushed a card with so much ease and Im not sure of its breaking point lol, this card is OC'ing like a beast lol.
Just got my third 5770 today, and later on in the week im gonna throw them together in Tri Fire for a review. Heres to seeing if it beats the 5970. :rock:
so far the flickering appears to be an issue with the card being too far underclocked in its lower power state to handle two monitors properly.
trying running folding@home gpu edition in the background. this normally raises the clock speed to a higher power state, and see if that reduces your flickering. so far, i believe this is an issue with the default powerstates in the bios. i think somewhere in this thread (or on this forum) there should be a guide to rewriting the power states on the bios.
folding@home is a temp fix that should keep it from flickering when youre running desktop applications, but the bios fix would be better.
but before you flash your bios, try contacting your card's manufacturer. a few card vendors have released updated bios' upon request.
Can someone run this benchmark with the same settings please and 5770 crossfire i feel theses are held back by the cpu.
I belive it would be held back as the cache on that chip is low mate
I wish I had the 5770's in or I would help you out. I can give you numbers for a few other games.

Well yes but 3.6 is not enough in general
Looks like Crysis benchmark was detecting your 2180@4Ghz? And 3.6Ghz is a good overclock on that CPU Kylzer. It just needs more L2
Indeed i'm trying to get a quad for my friend
that E2180 will not run stable over 3.6 even tried 1.6v lol
