What should i get?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I current have a 5870 (the original one that doesn't have the fan in the middle ) and am wondering whether it would be worth upgrading to a high end 6000 series or putting in another 5870 in CF ive got a good few hundred pounds about so could do either thanks in advance

If you go CFX, good luck finding another 5870, IIRC they are going quick.

I'd go Crossfire. The 5870 is about equivalent to a 6950, with the 6950 being a tad faster. The 6970 will only give you 5-10 frames.

Crossfire it up.
