Few Questions about the 5770

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok, i know alot of people say that newer cards are great. but heres my reasoning and then the questions.

1. in 2009 when i built this rig (around when the PH II x3 720 BE was all the rage), i build my current rig with 2 Radeon HD 4670s in crossfire. and they would still do what I need. but i wanted to start running amazing graphics and see some great quality. but i didn't want a single card, hers why
i purchased a new PSU and the 2 5770s at Christmas time, got them at a great price, 99.99 each on a new egg deal and i purchased 2 of them.

i have a 22 " acer wide screen, as you can see in my Profile pic, u cans see the 2 monitors, (i know only use 1 because i build my wife's rig and gave her one of mine so i could save some money)
now, i heard about 1080pm and HD blah blah.. but. when it comes to all this i actually don't understand anything on resolution other than 1080p is the best (i think)
do u have to have a monitor that HAS HD capability or can u set in CCC the HD resolution etc.

also, with "Project Red Death" i am going to be running a large multi monitor setup. capable of massive multitasking. gaming/monitoring temps and loads/ and possibly you tube music list along with i tunes for some jams. yes i own an i-pod touch, YES i hate apple software and hardware, but it was a gift from my wife. whats the best way for multi monitor setup when it comes to hardware/software. jstu get 4 nice monitors that have a great resolution and hook them to the cards, and setup multiple monitors.. or some sort of other setup. thanks everyone for the help.

(on another note, i WILL be purchasing 2 of the new 7XXX ATI cards in the fall. so i can get the monitors at the same time. thanks again!

i currently run 1 monitor on my 2 5770s and the resolution is 1690x1050

Most, if not all, monitors sold now are HD. Any monitor with more than 720 lines of vertical resolution do. 900 is probably the lowest you'll see. So yes, you'll be fine.

Note: you can't use more than 3 monitors with eyefinity on a 57xx series card. Even if you crossfire, you'll still only be able to use 3 monitors max.

i do not plan on eye-finity, just 4 monitors for multitasking. not a huge fan of eyefinity anyways
