5770 Upgrade? - Page 2

I have $50 atm and Im selling my ipod since I dont use it so I'll probably have like $130 which isnt alot for a gpu. Will CF 5770s give me a good performance boost since the mobo has 16x16 crossfire/sli?
Just a quick note, since I rather recently discovered this while trying to create a parts list for a friend: according to HardOCP, until you are in the super high range graphics cards, the PCI-E lanes don't get utilized past x8 x8 anyway, and even when they do, don't increase performance a whole lot. Rather tangential to the matter at hand, but I felt like sharing newfound knowledge

You can get a 5770 or a 6770 (both CF w/ a 5770 well) for less than $85 with Sapphire rebate. Use DEALMONGO as the coupon code for 15% off. I'd go with the 6770 though because it appears to run cooler and has 3D capabilities for the same price.

You can actually get anything off with that coupon so use wisely. Seriously though, those cards a steal. Especially using CF

Just saying. If you are going to buy a new single card, get something that makes the premium worth it over a second 5770.
Yup, 5770s are pretty awesome CF cards. I would grab a second and be done with it.

having the upgrade path is nice but TBH by the time 6950/5870 performance isn't "enough" for gaming new cards that perform better for less will be out anyways.

I have an oddball suggestion:

You might consider selling the 5770, and picking up a pair of 6790s. The 6790 scales better in CF than other cards. I don't recommend the 6790 as a single card, but it is a real powerhouse in CF configurations. Performance is the same as a 6970 but will cost less.

I am with you on this one. Right now my 5770 does pretty well, yes I could ask for a few more FPS but adding another 5770 will only keep me going for a while longer and then I'll have 2 old cards that I'll have to figure out what to do with. Instead I'll beat on this card until the 7xxx cards are out and at a price I like and then pull the trigger on a new architecture and sell the 5770 for cheap or put it in my office rig.
