5770 Crossfire X for $330 discussion.

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Edit: I mean 3 5770 CrossfireX or Tri-Fire, whatever you want to call it.

How good is this for $300(newegg sale). Seems like it is good bang for the buck.

Edit again: Never mind, going with two instead for CF for $220.

6950 for $300 unlocked to a 6970 = better bang for the $$ faster than 5770 crossfire, and less problems

I'm talking 3 5770s that have shown to be as fast as 5970 for $330. 3 brand new cards.

They don't scale well in some games though. There will never be a scaling problem with 1 card.

Which games, will they scale in bad company 2, black ops, nfs shift, and metro maybe? Entertaining the though because it's so cheap. Already got two coming for $220, but I think one more just for kicks.

What resolution screen are you running? Im running 5770 Tri-fire, And the only game that pulls them down is metro @ 1080p I get 35 - 45 fps. 5770 crossfire and Tri-fire scaling is very good.

Resolution is key. Not really keen on the idea of 2-way, let alone 3-way configs on low-end gaming cards. No fallback if scaling sucks or CF outright doesn't work.

Haven't seen anyone with trifire 5770 here, what do you score in vantage for GPU?

Unfortunately since the OP already bought 2 5770 he's kinda stuck with them but crossfire 5770's is still a good setup. Wait till prices come down on the new 69XX and get one and then buy another later

That will do about as well as a 5870 (~$300 too) performance is always about equal to price, you DO in fact get what you pay for. Except with CPUs and marked-up flagship products like the 480 I stupidly bought but love.

EDIT:I had this setup at one point. (Trifire 5770s, NO UPGRADE PATH EITHER! HOT!)
