Should I crossfire?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm pending a buy of a 5770 and a crossfire bridge for $90. The company is XFX. Matches the 5770 I have now. In the near future, I wanted to get a GTX 560ti and run with that. Since I've found the second 5770, I'm not sure what I want to do. Should I crossfire or buy the GTX 560ti? I debating myself and think I need some external help.

the Crossifre is going to give you a slight edge over the a single 560 ti. If your looking for a quick cheap upgrade for now, for $90 do crossfire, other wise, long tern 560 ti than SLI that in a a year or two will be your best bet.

3Dmark11 shows a small increase with 5770 in cfr over the 560 ti.

Thanks for your help. I plan to make the jump to bulldozer so maybe I'll hold out on the 5770 cf. I'm more partial to single powerful cards then 2 lesser ones.
