Crossfire 5770's to? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
I guess when I get the cash i'll just upgrade to the 6950. My cpu is i7 930 3.36ghz

And I am on the 10.11 drivers, going to update to the 10.12 most likely.

Also i got 40 fps in crysis maxed out? bad? good?

Good,
Especially (Maxed out.)
And in games like Crysis and Metro when down to 40fps smooth
as peanut butter.
YMMV!

GTA 4 is a pretty bad console port. The 2GB of vram might help gta 4 run smoother on the 6950.

I would say get the 6950 then later another and you should be set and 40 in max crysis sounds good and agree with above GTA is a bit too overbearing considering it was a console title to begin with...

If going to 2 6950s or 70s would be a whole different story.
My 5770s play everything out there I run at high settings.

If going to upgrade make it worth while, cost to performance wise.

Why not get a 6950 and unlock it to a 6970...

http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/...ng/vidcard/159

I can't decide if I should go for this or just get another 5770 once I get sandy bridge.

What kind of benchmarks are you getting with 5770 x2?

I got 5770 CF on the way as well. It's only $200 for a pair right now, but you could get a 5850 for like $160 right now I think.

Thanks for the replies guys! I am going to get the 6950 since it seems very good. Hope I will be set for a long time, and if I need to get another one i will. But hopefully 1 will last me some time, and be better then my duel 5770's.

Hi,

But wouldn't be as good as 5770 CF
Plus the ref 5770 one of the best OC card there is.

And even the non ref cards can be V modded generally.
Have mine at 960/1375 at 1.20v and had them at 1000+/1400
plus, but heat became a problem because of my board in CF.
Added ram heat sinks and side case fan to help.
It did.

Spacing on my board and top card a problem
Spacing problem Pics.
And case fan help.
