Get a GTX 480/470 for you it will be the best choice, if you want to go with ATI 5850/5870

Seriously, the amount of threads asking the same question is getting out of hand a bit.

Isn't 2x5770's still more cost effective, and energy efficient? With better overclocking potential?

I went from 2 4890s to 1 5870 and the performance increase/decrease was barely noticeable. I was getting around 18.5k on Vantage with 2 4890s and got 20.5k on my first bench with a single 5870. Of course, all that changed when I got my 2nd 5870

I would still choose 5870 over 2 5770s because if you plan to crossfire the 5870, you'll have the room to do so and that crossfire has some issues so a single GPU is always better than 2 that perform the same as the 1.

if you were looking at crossfire 4890's i would just recommend crossfire 5770's or 5830's. you can get two 5770's for like $300 or spend $400 and get 5830's

agree, i would avoid having 2 cards in my system also its still a pretty uncommon thing so there will always be trouble and less support. Besides I'll need to look out for another GPU waterclock too that will add up the cost again.

The 5770's scale great, and I've had ZERO issues in games. Even if Crossfire wasn't working with a game temporarily, one 5770 is still a great GPU
