post #4281 of 5048
I am thinking about grabbing a second 5770, since they are $130 with a rebate (off of Newegg I believe), is this a wise choice? Has anyone had any problems with Crossfire? Will I notice any big differences in the games I play? I know I wont notice any differences in Battlefield 2, but what about Starcraft 2, or GTA4? I had COD:MW2 but it is the ****tiest multiplayer game I have ever played, so I uninstalled it. I currently have my single card overclocked to 920/1400 @ stock voltage.

That's what I did. I only had one for a little while then they got so inexpensive at Newegg I just pulled the plug on another. You would gain about 60-75% in FPS in most games. Games Like BFBC2 or Metro 2033 not so much. RE5, Mafia 2, GTA4, COD Black Ops, Batman AA, Yes I have gained about 30+ FPS in those.
Make sure to run the latest crossfire drivers and CCC 10.11 has been running great for me so far.

Hi (relatively new to overclocking.net)

Bought my VaporX 5770 around 3 months ago... definately a great price/performance choice.

I bought a XFX HD 5770 about a week ago, I figured I'd try one of these before I got a HD 6850 Toxic in a few months...

I believe its a non-ref PCB (only one x-fire tab) with the blower fan (looks like a brick) it also has Samsung Mem IC's if that makes a difference.

Its true there isnt a large price difference between the 5770 and the 6850, but I figured it will be a backup card later on. My first ATI was a Sapphire HD 4670 1GB and it performed just fine.

Although many complain about the drivers I figure I'd find out on my own, so far there have been no problems...

I'm running the 10.6's, the card is not fully tested but right now I'm running at 1000/1350 1.200v,. I might be able to lower the voltage but for now its good.

The temps are running about 72c 60% fan with a 76-78f ambiant, playing Crysis.

Overall I like the card.

It's a great idea. Starcraft 2 I don't know about but GTA4 I would think should offer some better performance. I haven't had any issues with my two cards and currently have them oc'd 1010/1310 (I think this voltage is correct I'll have to check) 1.179v(watercooled though)my temps don't go above 48C.

Just upgrade from my xfx 4830 to a msi 5770 Hawk and I love it. Its certainly a great bang for your buck card. I currently have it clocked at 900/1300

I'm actually thinking about grabbing a GTX 570 now. Expensive I know, but CF 5770's wont cut it for newer games that will be coming out sometime in the next year. (I'm preparing for Battlefield 3) So I'm probably going to get a 570 and then next year maybe put them in SLI or see what kind of single cards are available then.
