  1. I think you may have mistaken this site for google.

    Come back if you encountered problems with your new GPU.

    Yes, a 5870 is fully able to Crossfire. You don't need to have another card that is exactly the same, or even the same brand, so long as the second card is running a 5870 or 5850 chip on it. The two cards will use settings that are compatible with the slowest card.
  3. You may need to check eBay; old upper end cards like the 5870 used to be tend to disappear. There are too many people trying to get them for throwback/retro builds to find them new anymore.

    This is the only one I could find new, and it's massively overpriced and would need to be imported if you don't live in the UK. They go for like $70 on eBay.

    And whats the model of your old graphics card. Most probably it will run in xfire with any 5870 but you need to give exact model number just to have a closer comparison.


    My current gpu is GV-R5870C-1GD it is a gigabyte one
