Thread Starter 
I just want a little help from you guys in Crossfire.
I'm totally new to crossfire thing.

I have a ATI hd Radeon 5770 -1Gb- Sapphire
This 1 : CLICK HERE


And I've found a guy selling R5770-PMD1G Radeon HD -1Gb- MSI.
This 1 : CLICK HERE

Un-used condition in cheap.

So If I grab this card and get it crossfire'd with my current card (mentioned above).


The crossfire will be successful ?
How much performance will increase ?
Render time of Autodesk-Maya will improve ?
Will it help in gaming ?



Please help me so that I can grab this card by tomorrow morning If you guys approve it

Hi mate,

crossfire will work fine with these 2 cards.

Gaming will be a lot better but I cant comment on Maya render times as I dont use it. I would suspect as you would be doubling the memory and GPU power that the render times would be a lot better if it supports multiple GPUs.

Not sure about Maya with 5770s in Crossfire, but the basic video card performance will increase in Crossfire, but newer 6xxx cards Crossfire a lot better than 5xxx cards. The newer 6870 single card is about the same as two 5770s in Crossfire.

Hi,

Should'nt have any problems and run all the stronger games I have
at very good fps.

Only reason I'm hanging on to mine until the 7000 series comes out.

Good Luck.

I used to own to 5770s. If CF 5770s equal a 5870, then you know that a 5870 just barely out performs a 6870.
