have ASUS Essentio cm 6850 with motherboard that has crossfire capabilities

So i didnt know about the crossfire capabilities until after i purchased a new GeForce GTX 550 Ti and im looking to upgrade to play EOS. What would be better to just upgrade to a better GeForce or go the crossfire way? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I dont know that much about building computers or whats in them.

Specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 - CPU @3.40GHz
RAM- 8GB
PSU- 850W

  1. I would say to keep the 6850. I have one myself and I can run the latest games. Also, don't take my word but I think the 6850 is a stronger card compared to the 550Ti. Personally, to upgrade my 6850 I'd save up for a GTX 760.

    i dont have the 6850 i have the 550Ti. So im wondering if you should go the crossfire route and run duel AMD or just upgrade my Nvidia?

    Oh, that makes more sense. I had a bit of a confusion. I would say to stick with a single card rather than crossfire. According to the Asus site the only two Radeon cards that could have used would be a 7350 and 7470 which are lower end Radeon cards. I would get a higher end single card rather then do crossfire.
