less you are playing old games such as source games or old cods, etc
keep in mind the 68xx card scale almost lineraly while the 5770 doesnt it does very well. so cf of the 6870 makes it even more powerful vs the 5770. you could also get a used 5870 in the ocn market for 200. Thats what I did before xmas for 225
i play dirt 2, grid, tf2, gow, batman aa, just cause 2, and sf4 ohh, and lf1 and lf2. right now im playing on a old crt but im getting my lcd back from my bro this weekend.
and i understand about the crossfire, im just looking for a card that will run my games decent for a month or 2 till my taxes come in, then gonna get a new gpu and psu and my new system will be done.Edited by Blue Destroyer - 1/21/11 at 12:24pm
