Is my Sig Rig Balanced? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
I would upgrade the monitor before going crossfire.
Even my 3870 could handle nearly everything on high at 1360x768 (replaced at the beginning of this month).

i can unlock the 4th core but it takes a ton of voltage and is still unstable, the 4th core in my chip is truly faulty

I would say before you do anything else (except maybe a new psu) get a new monitor. 5770 at only 720p? You can pick up a 22" 1080p for $100 in the for sale section or if you find a deal somewhere.
And yea new psu (coming from the guy with an equally bad psu ).
And if you are gonna get another 5770 you might want to think about oc'ing (if you aren't already) which might involve a new cooler.
Overall though pretty balanced.

That's pretty much an aside though, what speed is your porcessor? if it's pushing 4ghz, i reckon it could still be fairly balanced, though i would urge you to sell your 2x 5770s for a 5850, they're very very cheap at the minute (in england) and i believe the performance of 5770's in x-fire is close to a 5850 but without the hassle.
from everything i have read the 5770s in x fire are actually a bit better than a 5850 and i did have my processor up to 3.75ghz but i dropped it back down because my roommates where complaining about the cold temps in our room

Downscaling is crappy.

A new PSU might be able to stabilize your core unlock. Of course that is only if the core is working fine. Also, you might be able to slim down the PSU to a 500-550. Even with crossfire that should be fine. The 5770 doesn't pull much power.

And a moded Rosewill might not work for a good case.

Aside from the aforementioned PSU issue, your rig is fine.

i am actually really proud of this case (it was my first mod) it came out quite well and has a lot of air flow

EDIT: this is how the case came out and my current set up

This is the reason i have to rma my 5770


From far away


other angle showing detail on case


Sorry for the bad quality, left my camera at home using my cell for the pics
