should i upgrade/sidegrade?
Asus M4A79XTD EVO MB what i would upgrade to and my current mobo is in my sig. reason is i want to downgrade so to speak and get 2 5770 instead of 1 5850. i cant afford 2 but i can afford 2 5770's. and i have a chance to sell my mobo and cpu so is the upgrade woth it or just keep what i got and stick with my 5850? ill return the vid card if it is worth swaping

Well 2 5770s are about = to a 5870.

It would only be worth the trouble if you felt like you needed it. my recommendation would be just stick with what you have until you can get a second 5850, because theres a lot of trouble to go to for only a little performance boost, at least with the current games that are out.

If you feel like you really need it though and dont care about putting some time into doing all that, and youre not losing money (at least not more than 50$) then go for it
