Howdy! Doubts again...yeah it`s a girl thing.
So I tested the 6850 for a day, playing ME2, with Fraps oscilating 25~45 (1280x1024), not max. Without FRAPS: 60 fps.
Today I set all catalyst AA, etc to max (game settings are already at max) and got around 50+ fps with FRAPS.
Pretty good I guess.
HOWEVER, my CPU case is average (two average coolers) and temperature rized to 47'C (testing with speedfan), plus the card cooler noise, oscilating all the time. Im freaking about the temperature compared to my old 35'C. Some say it's normal and temperature could rise to 75'C
If that goes on, I will need a bigger case and I seriously don't want a "building" in my table... and then buy more coolers, argh....laptos are soooo much better.
So considering I'm an average gamer, will play only ME trilogy at my PC (the rest of my old games I plat at my lap), I'm thinking why the heck I got a 6850, that consumes 19w plus energy (and I leave the PC on for 8 hours) compared to the 5770. It showed a good/ok performance in youtube. I know the 6850 its 28% better close to 5770, but I think I just got a Ferrari and wont make a lot of use...
Oh yea and I saw tests in 5770 with fraps and seems it also goes 30 fps, and 60 fps without it. So the fps is basically the same compared to 6850. Maybe with AA the 5770 will performe at a nice rate.
