5770 xfire? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
CrossfireX 5770's (btw they have 5870 performance) will handle a GTX 560Ti, but if you already have a 560 get another.

I lol'd so hard...

5770's are one of the BEST scaling cards there is when paired up.

As I've owned 5770 Crossfire AND Tri-Fire I can say they are faster then a 5870 99% of the time.

I was pulling 40fps average in Crysis with Very High setting, DX10 with no AA at 1080p.

And that was at stock clocks!!

OP : If getting a second 560 is definitely not going to happen any time soon then get the 5770's, If there is a chance that you could get another 560 then keep what you have.

Looking through that review they do scale pretty well in a lot of things. I can admit when i was wrong about the scaling. Still with the 560 doubling up a 5770 in most reviews going to a xfire 5770 set up doesnt make sense to me.

It does make sense in normal circumstances but the OP has already FLAT OUT said he can't afford to buy another 560 ti and he just wants to get maximum performance for his money.

Which in that case he's best off with 2 overclocked 5770's smile.gif

He said he has a 560, moving to the 5770 is a lateral move at best, plus he has the added head ache of xfire. Not worth it. And he would have to buy another 5770. Better to stick with the 5770 and not spend any money.

I know he has a 560 ti rolleyes.gif

xfire is no problem at all, 5770's would be faster and there no if's or but's about it.

Here is a direct comparison of 1 560 to 1 5770
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2011-gaming-graphics-charts/compare,2670.html?prod%5B4833%5D=on&prod%5B4855%5D=on


The 5770's scale extremely well...typically almost 80% increase. Two HD5770's in a crossfire setup will be similar in performance to a single HD5870...so look for comparisons between a 560 and 5870 and you'll have your answer.

But it's not much more then a 560 overclocked which approaches a 570. Also he doesn't have to deal with compatibility issues or glitches.

If he had the 5770, and not a 560 I would say to add another 5770 as they are so cheap now. Since he has the 560 I would stick with it until the next round of cards come out if he is desperate to upgrade.

I don't think going from a single card to 2 for a small performance increase(game, not benchmark) is the way to go.

I wish people would learn to read before posting..

He already has a 5770 so he wouldn't have to spend a lot of money to get another.

Again compatibility issues has been a stupid argument now for the last couple of years as multi GPU set-ups from AMD and Nvidia are much much common rolleyes.gif

OP : Sell the 5770 you have and the 560 ti and get 6850/5850 crossfire?
post #20 of 24
So i guess the answer is if the op wants to spend 90$ for the marginally better performance some of the time go for it. Just keep in mind 2 card solutions will have more issues then a single card and that you are losing PhysX, for a very small upgrade.
