5770 cf

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Currently running a single 5770, another one is only $130AU, would that be my best option for the money. I have been told a single 6850 would be a better choice, but for only $130 i am tempted to just get another 5770. Also, in terms of the long run, 5770CF get outdated really soon i guess? Thanks.

Im currently running a 5770 and want to go xfire as well.. i feel the same way with it being outdated soon. actually right now lol.

but in my opinion since i already have a 5770 i may as well get another im just waiting for a deal on another one. i paid 90 for this one used. plays all my games at 1080 great but x2 would be nice.

imo go for it then a few months later buy a current next gen card and you'll have the 5770s left over. (<- reason to build another rig, or sell them for folding or do it yourself.)

Crossfire 5770's will completely cream a 6850 in every game.

So if you can get a 5770 cheap enough then go for it

Yeah well, 1x 5770 is $130, 1x 6850 is about $200, plus the money i get for my 5770. So its really the same haha.

It really isn't the same.

A 6850 for the most part is slower then a 5850.

Crossfire 5770's for the most part are faster then a 5870

A 5870 trades blows with a 6950.

I meant the same in price. There is lots of stuff on google with this exact same question and the results are pretty even, so why is it you think they are will "completely cream" the 6850?

Because I've run a single 5850 ( Which is faster then a 6850 )

And I've run 5770 Crossfire and the 5770's were a heck of a lot faster.

Heck I even run 5770 Tri-fire

Fair enough, i think i already had it in my mind that i wanted crossfire anyway and heck, its cheap in my eyes.

EDIT: Geez, my subconscious mind must have made me write heck because you did :|
