Asus DirectCU II 7770 2GB Crossfire?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok everyone I've been looking for cards from the new generations for a while now and will come to a complete decision once I see how the 650tis do. My question is how well will a the Asus DirectCU II 7770 2GB do in crossfire?
Regular 7770 seem to keep up with the 7950 till you get to high res and AA due to only 1gb but will 2gb be better?



So if I grab two of these will that be a good set up?
How is crossfire?

Its this are 7850s if the 650tis don't impress me as budget cards

I vote for single card solutions since dual card solutions are less than optimal both in the physical world (power draw, temperatures, noise) and software (driver setup, XFire compatible games, tweaking, etc).

Why would you want to SLI two low end cards rather than get one single high end card if they perform roughly the same for the same budget?

Random Thought. since two low end cards usely end up to 1 high end card. Like how my 550tis come around to a 570 at 6950. The 2gb might allow it to keep with a 7970. I also need to play over 3 screens.

Your same logic applies is my logic. Since they do, go with single? You end up paying more for it. I believe you can run more than 3 screens on a single card... Unless your cards are low end then you need two of them since a single one wouldn't have the right connectivity.

I have been reading on the performance of a c/f 7770 (asus 2gb) and I personally am going that way too. I was advised to go with a single more expensive card but I have been there done that and would like to see what c/f is all about. I also got both 2gb asus cards for less than I could've gotten a single card that outperforms them. My big thing is that I could, If a reason came about, always remove one card and still game reasonably well. Like if one card failed or rma had to occur, with a single card you're out of business, even to just plain get online as most enthusiast mobo's have no onboard graphics. I also have 5 kids with their own system and if any of their cards failed, I could just temporarily slap one in their system.... I believe it's mainly personal preference like most things, well, and curiousity too lol. Have been saving and collecting parts for my "dream machine" too and what a better time than now to try it? I have currently a 6850 but have had 6950's as well as a 5870 and they both performed well, but i surely worried more than once about a failure and had to keep a cruddy 6670 on hand for just in case. I can put that into another system or sell it off when I put this new one together though.
BTW, milestailsprowe, what did you end up getting just out of curiousity?
