Hi people,

Should I get another xxx 5770 and crossfire them.

Or should I get rid of my 5770 and just buy a 5870 or something

Either way I am going to have to buy a new psu first because Its cheap and nasty and isnt modular and loads of stuff, oh and it doesnt have all the power connections I need.

So should I get Xfire or should I buy another single card, btw most I could spend would be £200 on the gfx card,

If you think I would be better with something else, not the 5870 let me know, oh and no Nvidia please, Im not trying to start a flame war, but no NVidia

Thanks

you should get 6870 1gb imo 5870 might be little faster but doesn't have much of tessellation like amd 6000 series does.
plus use less heat and power.

bulldozer might be worth it after wait but I didn't feel like waiting any more longer I grab Sandy bridge .
I'm going to grab another pair of 6850 in few month when price drops for crossfire set up for my rig.

Yeah that's the only thing, is waiting, I mean my machine does everything I need it do and, mainly use it for gaming, so there are the odd games that I need a little more power, like arma 2, havent even bothered to play that, installed it and just left it waiting for an upgrade. Also the voice acting in that game is terrible, think I will more than likely be getting a sandy bridge just because its already out
