FS: ATI 5850

Postby Furious Gorge » Sun Jan 06, 2013 9:20 pm

So, with all this talk of upgrading (esp. Faust and Canuck), and Nikon chirping me (in a nice way, of course :) ) about running in windowed mode, I impulsively bought a new graphics card yesterday. So my old one is up for sale if you're interested at what I think might be a pretty decent price (compared with Ebay and Craigslist) for friends and members of OldF. I'll even throw in the Dirt 2 game that came with it that I never loaded/activated (yes, I know it's super old... but it's FREE! Haha.). Located in Vancouver.

Powercolor ATI 5850 1GB GDDR5 PCI-Express - $50

It will run NS2 at 1600x900 with high textures (I can't remember if I had AA/AF on) at over 60fps (provided your CPU is fast enough - i.e. 4Ghz or faster)... and at that point, it will be your CPU holding you back. If you try and run 1080p (1920x1080), this card will be the thing holding you back).

It's able to maintain full 1080p in COD: Black Ops 2 at constant 60fps with vsync on, but will run over 120fps with it off, but the frames rates will be more eratic (up and down between 100 and 150) and I notice a lot more screen tearing (which should not be noticeable if you happen if you have a nifty 120Hz monitor).

TF2 runs super high FPS -- it's not even an issue.

Just remember that it won't increase your FPS for NS2, if that will be your main reason for considering it. It will mainly allow you to play with higher texture settings or a higher resolution. Your FPS will be dictated by the speed of your CPU. BUT, if you have other games in mind, it will be a good addition, I think. :)
