switch my 5870 cf for a 580? - Page 2

Maybe you could upgrade to a 6970 and cf later because I heard that the crossfire scaling with the 6000 series is much better then the 5000 series. I think 6970 crossfire beats most 580 sli due to thr improved scaling.

New cards are coming out in a month or so. I would probably wait. From Anandtech, it looks as though 580SLI and 6970CFX are close in a lot of benchmarks. In your case, if you wanted one single card, I would either look at 7970s when they are released (likely 450-550 without water block) or a 580 around xmas time when they are rumored to be discounted to 350 (without water block). I would estimate your CFX 5870s to be worth 350-400 maybe? During that time, earn more REPS on this site so you can toss your cards up on the marketplace.

My wife runs xfire 5850's, and she has zero issues with any game. Great cards, I'd stick with the 5870's, just RMA them. If you have many to toss away, SLI 580's, or wait for the new 7000 series.
