really? the 5770 is much cheaper? I was under the impression that the difference was only $10 or so
5770 is great and even in crossfire and costs less than the 5850 and a 4870x2 almost pars up to the 5850 if not better.
i own a 5770 its great at 1680x1050 and shouldn't have any problems playin in better resolution but i don't hardcore game but if you do CF is the way to go getting max reso rather than 1 card and just trying to push it to where its sometimes too much... IMO
