help on choosing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i'm looking to upgrade my video card to a better card.
my current setup is
Q6600
Asus P5K mobo
8gig kingston HyperX
Nvidia 8800GT
600W PSU

and I'm looking to swap this card with my friend's radeon 4870 512mb.
I'am not familiar with xfire or combining two of these cards.

I do alot of photo editing, video editing and gaming.

I don't want to spend alot on my video card so trading it with the 4870 and possibly getting another 4870 somewhere.

sorry for the noob questions and stupid ones. Thanks!

4870's are about as good as a 5770 they can play any game at 1680x1050 or lower on high
but crossfiring them would be good

Thanks for the info.. I do play on 1080p because that's my native resolution, so I would like to get a card that would do the job.

@try- I'm here in canada so I'm looking at some used out here or thru my friend.

Cuda would definitely help you on your video editing, and on photoshop
