A few years ago I bought 2 3870x2's. They were top of the line at the time, arguably the best card out there. Well, now one of them has gone defective. Some kind of hardware issue. The guys at Memory Express (where I bought it) have said that they will take the defective one, and the one that's still good (since I bought them as a pair to run in Crossfire) and give me two 5770's. I'm here to ask if they're giving me the proper deal here. I'm reasonably sure that the two 5770's will outperform my 3870x2's, but I have some questions. First, how important is memory bandwidth? Looking at the stats, the 5770's outperform the 3870x2's in almost all departments, except for memory bandwidth. 1 3870x2 had somewhere around 130 gb/s memory bandwidth, while the 5770 had only somewhere around 70 gb/s. Also, what are they using as their measure for replacing my card? Are they trying to find a card that is of comparable performance, or are they replacing it based on ATI's heirarchy of cards? I mean, I don't mean to sound greedy, but if it's based on the heirarchy, the 3870x2 was the best card out there when I bought it (like 500 bucks per card if I remember correctly), so shouldn't I be replaced with a card of similar value? The 5770's I believe are considered more of a value card. Just doesn't seem right to replace a card that cost me 500 bucks per with a card that's worth like 150 per. I mean, both ATI and nVidia always come out with different cards of their respective series. They have heavy duty top of the line gaming cards (what my 3870x2's were at the time), their mid range cards, and then their lowbie cards. Since my 3870x2 was their big hitter, am I right to expect them to replace it with their new big hitter, or am I just being greedy? Also, the 3870x2's are dual GPU cards, and they're planning on replacing it with a single GPU card. Are they giving me a good deal, or should I try to see if I can get more from them? See if I can get them to give me a 5850 or 5870? Or maybe even 5000 series x2 card? Some thoughts on this matter would be appreciated. This is the first time I've ever had to take a card back and have it replaced with a different type of card, so I'm not sure if it's even negotiable what card I get or not.
