Thanks in advance
The newer XFX HD5770's use a custom PCB from XFX, not a reference PCB from ATI. This makes them cheaper to manufacture but you also lose out on 3-way crossfire support. This happened to me (just got my second card last week). It's no biggie though. You only need one crossfire bridge to connect the cards anyway.

EDIT: And my newest card didn't come with a crossfire bridge as well. I used the one that came with my first 5770.

Some folks are experiencing this with 5870's and 5890's as well... I havent really heard an feasible fix for the problem.

Rules say Furmark or Kombustor, either or is fine so you're back up, except is this for your single XFX 5770, or for your Xfire setup? Also, please tell me what voltage.

Just got a smokin deal on a 5770, How are you all liking your card so far.

And what kind of percentage increase do you net by running 2 in crossfire? is it worth 160 bucks?

Let me elaborate. Most games do show a significant improvement with a second card. Some times I saw up to 80% gain by using a second card(not Crysis!!!!)

My reason for selling my second card is that 50-60fps(recent titles on higher settings) is just fine with a single card and in almost all the games I play on a regular basis I get 100s of FPS with just one card.

IMO the consoles are holding games back from using the hardware that's on the market to its full potential. Because games have to be universal across all platforms I believe you will not need more power for around another year and by then......you will probably just have another card.

In the rare circumstance that you play a game that 1 5770 is not enough or you just want higher benchmarking scores, stick with one card and save the money for something else. Unless you have a huge monitor in which case a 5870 would of been a better option in the first place seeing as a single card solution is usually best because of driver issues [mainly with the newest games & older games such as Rome: Total War(flickering with Xfire enabled)]

my and good luck

EDIT: Starcraft 2 looks great but the output of new and innovative games pains me. Meanwhile God of War III for PS3 has been sustaining me!!

xfire + physx GPU = FTW... the games that have most of the Xfire issues will benefit greatly from having a physx GPU... just 1x way to circumvent buggy performance with multi GPU.
