Radeon HD 5870


Recommended Posts

Also doesn't your mobo have an ethernet jack? Why don't you just use that? Your link also just goes to the sapphire home page.

Odd, when I click that link it takes me to the product page for their Vapor-X HD5870. It looks so much cooler than the stock 5870s. They actually are cooler too coz of the Vapor-X cooling. That's the one I'll get if I come into some money. As for my ethernet jacks, I have two I think, but when it comes to internet connections and networks and stuff, I'm completely useless. Can I use my ADSL connection just by plugging the phone line into one of the ethernet ports? I don't have a router of any kind, just a USB ADSL modem for the family computer, and an internal PCI one for mine.


This double graphics card stuff always seems a major pain in the ass to me.

Certainly can be at times.

No you need a router or modem with an ethernet jack on it. I know the Vapor-X model, that was one I was thinking about getting, only problem is it blows heat all over your case instead of out the back. It's probably not going to be a problem in my case though. I think I will wait for the 2GB 5870s to come out :lol:
