A New Graphics Card

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Greetings forum!

So after having my XFX 5770 Crossfire for 8 months now I would like to get a new video card.

What card would you recommend and is it worth getting a new card when the new cards are coming up?.

The only purpose is gaming.

My max prize range is about 450 bucks.

Many Regards

Sell your current GPU's and upgrade to single graphics card. Personally I'd go for a 590...but the 6990 is very attractive, considering you're already an ATI user.

I just went from 2 4870, 512s CF to a single 6970 and have no regrets.

Yes I will sell them! I just want some opinion if its worth getting a new video card now or wait for the 6990 or 595.
