5670 crossfire review. Don't need a bridge, everything transferred through pcie slot.

However not best bang for buck scenario. If the 5670 is still in the return period, maybe consider sending that back and getting a 5750 or 5770 for not that much more money. 5670 CF should perform around 5770 levels, but the 5770 will be slightly cheaper. Either setup would require more than the 400w psu.

59 dollars is a good price. Which is cheaper 2 5670s or 1 5770?

Should be just about. Check that guru3d review I linked. 5770 and cf 5670s both benched in there. Similar benches. Makes sense as the 5670 is "half" of a 5770 (400sp vs 800sp).

Some games don't take advantage of CF, but I've found CF to work quite well with some of the newest ati drivers. I would recommend a custom fan profile in msi afterburner though. Makes a world of difference on temps.

For the $$ probably a second 5670 (avoid shipping / restock fees too) and a better proc down the line. That's a sweet motherboard.
