HD5850 vs HD5770x2?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a big difference between the 2 cards(s). I have a 5850 and was looking to trade for 2x 5770's, is that smart. Im not looking for a major upgrade i just wanted to give Xfire a shot and get an extra gig of memory.

Don't do it. Not worth it at all. Your not even gaining anything including that extra memory. Memory doesn't add up on gpus.
