5770 to 7770 GHz Edition

13 May 2016 - 07:46 PM

Hi All

Just a quick one -

My main system is still (don't laugh) running an i5-750, at stock speed with 8GB of RAM.

I know with a little work I can o/c that baby quite well, just really never gotten around to it.


I am currently running a 1GB XFX 5770 on it, but have acquired a Sapphire 1GB 7770 GHz Edition card for nix.

I was toying with the idea of doing a straight swap to hopefully give me a little more fps in some older games (mostly titles from 2013 like Dead Space, Dirt 3, etc) but somewhere I read that the memory bus on the 7770 is not as wide as the 5770, and so there is little difference between the two cards.

From memory, IIRC, the XFX is running at 850MHz.


Is it worth doing the swap, or am I just flogging a dead horse with a CPU/MOBO from 2009?


(Holy crap, I just realised I've had this box for almost 7 years!)
