Thread Starter 
How long will it be if i upgrade now untill i cant run games maxed out

will i be able to run
Dirt 3 maxed
Grid 2 maxed
Half life 3 maxed
Modern Warfare 3 maxed
All maxed this year maybe games next year

Thats a good question. CF 5770's is a nice set up but 1 card is always better. If you can afford the 58XX series you will be better of in the long run.

I have been wanting to get a second 5770 myself but with the green team lowering thier pricing and the advent of 6XXX series ATI, Im gonna sit this out for a month or two and see what kinda deals I can find on a good single card.

I adored my 5770 Tri-Fire

There are plenty of games CrossfireX 5770's cannot max out now.

That being said, they have 5870 or better performance when paired up and the latest driver sets have addressed many issues.

I didn't say get a 5870.
I said thats where CrossfireX 5770's perform.

If I where you, I'd look at a 1GB 6950.

My 5770 crossfire performs amazingly. It maxes every single game I own effortlessly. The only time I ever get low fps is when I set all of the 3d settings in CCC to max with 32x AA Wide Tent. Even then I only get some slow down in games like crysis.

Also I have 0 driver problems at all and never have. All it takes is just update the drivers (no driver sweeper) install Application Profiles and you're set

I recommend doing crossfire if it is within your budget but like others have said, 1 card is better than 2 so if you can afford a 5850/6870/6950 or a 480/570 I'd go that route as you can crossfire/SLI those later on and get even better performance.

The 5770 is no doubt a good card but i doubt a ctossfire would enhance performance that much. i would get a higher grade card with your new mobo then save up for another card to go with it.
