Need help deciding what card(s) to buy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am wanting to upgrade from my powercolor 5770 crossfire set (as well as some other components) to a card or two that would support eyefinity (the pair that I did buy do not support eyefinity).

Pricing is not too much of a limitation here, but I am not about to drop $800+ for a 5970. Here's what I need help on:

Single Card
-----------
Option A. XFX HD 5870 1 GB. ~ $200
Option B. Something HD 6970 ~ $330

Crossfire
--------
Option C. Something HD 6870x2 ~$400
Option D. XFX HD 5870x2 ~$400

I threw in the crossfire options there because I am not sure what the first two options (single card) are like on a 3 monitor eyefinity setup. The resolutions would probably be 1920x1080 each. Where would my value and performance be?

if your going to be doing any gaming on your eyefinity setup I'd say get some 5870s as they out perform 6870s in games. So i guess I vote option C
