  1. hi

    I got have got a new system with:
    mobo: gigabyte ga-ma785gt-ud3h
    8gb ram
    amd phenom x4 945 3.0Ghz
    650watt psu
    screen with 1920x1080p

    the integrated video card on the mobo isn't any good for gaming even some visual fx on FL9 are bad, and these games is what i want to play

    fallout 3
    far cry 2
    assasins creed 2
    some tom clancy games
    and older games

    Is the HIS Radeon HD 5750 IceQ+ a good choise for a semi entusiast gamer?
    it cost 149$ at newegg.com

    The HD 5750 will perform fine. However, the HD 5770 would be a better buy being only a few dollars more.

    Rit is right, go with a 5770 it's a much better buy for you. You could go for the IceQ version as well but it'll be more then a standard 5770.

    thanks
    but, I thought Ritwik suggested the 5770 IceQ and that is the one i'm saving up to now.
    No fence Relic
    I appriciate you're post as well as Ritwik's.

    I'm not sure but it seems that Relic and myself both suggested the same HD 5770 to you. A standard HD 5770 will perform better than your HD 5750 IceQ. I don't think that there's much benefit in purchasing the IceQ version of the HD 5770 as the card runs decently cool on a stock cooler.

    Absolutely agree.

    a roundup
    is the standard 5770 the best purchase for me?
    should I drop the Iceq version?

    I would say so. The IceQ version is slightly overclocked and about $30 more expensive than the standard. The Powercolor HD 5770 PCS+ would be a good choice if you're looking to get a factory OC'd model. It costs $159.99.

    i did some research and here's the sites:

    http://www.powercolor.com/global/products_features.asp?id=233#Specification
    http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-503.shtml

    added these just in case i forgot something.

    Compare to the specs between the powercolor 5770 PCS+ and His 5770 stock:

    powercolor HD 5770 PCS+
    core clock speed: 875Mhz
    memory clock speed: 4.9Gbps

    his HD 5770 stock
    core clock speed: 850Mhz
    memory clock speed: 4.8Gbps

    where i'm gonna buy a video card the powercolor is a litte bit cheaper, and as you can see the core and memory clock speed is is a litte bit higher.

    thanks
