you should just get a single strong card. the 7950 isn't all that expensive and should perform better than dual 7770

Will split this up into bits...

1, 2gb is better for futureproofing, specially if you crossfire. the bigger vRam will allow you to play more intensive games on more displays etc.

2, If you crossfire 2 cards with 2gb Vram each then you get 2gb vram, but if you crossfire 1 with 2gb and other with 1gb then you only get 1, and if you crossfire with both cards with 1vram then you get 1gb

3, The 7770 will OC quite well, but be sure to get one with an unlocked voltage to allow for more clocks, I recommend MSI for the 7xxx series

the hd 7770?
post #9 of 56
HD 7770 is basically a HD 6850. 1080P monitor you may find 1GB to be slightly too small depending on what game you play. The HD 7770 won't max all games out at that resolution.

I would agree with the bottom comments, a single card solution is best. I myself just bought a HD 7850 and they're not that much more expensive than the HD 7770s.

With crossfire you may feel micro stuttering, especially with the lower end 7000 series cards. Seen as you are thinking about crossfiring you may as well spend your money better on a single GPU solution that'll work better in terms of compatibility, performance and power. You could get a HD 7870 or 7950 if you have enough. Both will do fine at 1080P.
