Best Card for TriFireX

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I have an 890FXA-GD70 and I would really like to run three ATI cards. I just love the idea of it.

Right now I have one 5770 and I am waiting for the second one to arrive in the mail. I am not completely sure if it has one or two crossfire X sockets. But if it has two I was planning on running three. If not I am going to sell them in a bundle.

Basically I want to know the best cards to run in TriFire or quad crossfire. I have an 850w HALE90 PSU and would like to keep it if possible. Thanks! InerTia*

P.S. If I have been posting too much someone (preferably an admin) tell me if I am. Thanks!

They should quad, its standard for 5770 to have 2 crossfire links. From what I understand though x3 will get you best performance for $, four does not really bump performance much more than 3.

Well the one I have currently only has one crossfireX socket. Thats why I am so hesitant. Thanks

what is the model that you have now? XFX? and which model have you bought? They should all have two CFX connectors, except XFX branded cards. If your new secondary card has two connectors, you'll be fine, just use your current card at the 'top'

a 850W PSU should be ok for 3 5770

Maybe reference models have 2 links, but the majority of 5770's I have seen only have one CFX bridge.

Make sure that you have cards capable of tri-fire.
But I'd recommend getting a 5850 for the same price as a 5770! Two of these will perform just as well, cost exactly the same, but have less problems.

Thats the downside, I now have TWO XFX cards with only one bridge socket. I really did not like the layout of the other brand cards. Plus I thought they would look terrible with my phoenix style cooler that I already have.
