6850 CF vs 570

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I was going to get a 570 after your reccomendations but i just saw 6850 CF would fit in my budget and is same price as a 570. Anyone know if it's a better choice then a 570? Gaming at 1920x1080.

Cheers

Get a 570 single gpu is always better than two if performance is same or near, plus upgrading will be easier as you can get another 570 to SLI if you needed the performance boost.

Sig says you already have a 5870.
Why not get another?

6850 CF will be a bit faster then a single 570, but if you will ever upgrade in the future again i would go for the 570

I think the 570 would be the better choice personally. I love AMD but I agree with the comment about single GPU just being a better choice when you HAVE a choice. Go 570. I would if I had the money (and I have a 5870 just like you!)

There is an SLI patch (search for it AMD SLI patch)..... you might want to give that a try.. it may work on your board since I've seen success on allot of motherboards using that

Ofcourse that is if you go seriously and buy the 570.. which i'm just giving you the idea.. that you can SLI on a crossfireX only mobo .

yea but i dont really want to use a hack which i'd have to do whenever i want to upgrade drivers....when i want to reformat etc. So 6850 CF isnt THAT faster then a 570? if its not like 10% faster then i won't bother with 2 cards.
