Single vs Crossfire 5770 questions - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I only played crysis at the time, so having two 5770 wasn't any better than one since neither set up could achieve 100 FPS on very high.

Their difference at low settings was negligible. Both were over 100 FPS and I could reach 400 on smaller multiplayer maps with just one, so I returned the second one.

Also they always ran hot. I don't remember the loudness situation. I guess that means they weren't that loud at all. Although just my one 5770 gets loud under stress.

Not to mention that overclocking with MSI Afterburner becomes a BSOD-fest with crossfire set ups.

My verdict is stay single. Wait for the new xbox to come out to get a new GPU. That's what I'm doing, cause as you might guess, games are still being developed for the old old xbox 360 hardware.
