That depends, are you happy with its performance?

My 5770 runs L4D2 max settings, 2x MSAA, 1920x1080@ 920/1200 (stock mem clock) and hardly drops below 80 FPS. Not exactly a hard to run game, just trying to give you an example.

I am running extreme resolution, so I want anything I can get. I know it won't unleash the extra SPs, (they are laser locked) but it will give me better clock speeds, with potentially less heat than OCing myself.

I am pretty sure the BIOSes are interchangeable because of the whole ordeal of Sapphire accidentally releasing a bunch of 5770s with 5750 BIOS.

If your resolution is that extreme, you may have to consider going higher. 2560x1600?

higher than that.

5760x1200.
I know I will need to OC higher than that but the 5770 OC's higher, and I hear its BIOS provides more stable overclocks.

Yikes. I don't think I'll be of much help here. :/

Just wire it up straight to the wall. It'll be fine!
