Well i have a 5770 and i game at 1280x1024

I herd x2 5770s are better than a single 5870 but will it give me a good boost?

The main reason i would like to go crossfire with the 5770 is because it will save me like 200 quid but i guess my temps will be higher as there will be 2 cards in the system

Also will the new v2 cards (or v3 if there is any) affect my performance with the v1

Seeing as how you game at such a low resolution, adding a second 5770 would really have no effect on gameplay. It is possible to run a dual GPU card and a single GPU card in tri-fire, although I have never done it myself so I can't offer any details.

well i have twin 4770s in the kids rig and he loves it and i had twin 5770s in mine but traded them to the stepdad since he got a massive new monitor and wanted higher res. it was awesome and with his 955 @ 4.0 ran everything great but for your res its kinda a waste.

It was probably just my situation (bad card or something) but I will NEVER xfire again. The people who have seen my "bad card" thread will know why. For the same price as 2 cards I would just get a 5850, 2 cards = twice as much heat.

The 480 is going to be priced at 499.99 while the 470 at 349.99. Don't expect any price drops

The only price drops I would expect are from the MSI lightning/vapor-x 5870.
