I am seeking advice to make this decision. Or would it be more practical to purchase one XFX HD-587A-ZNF9 Radeon HD 5870 for a bit more than the two would cost. -Help -George More about : crossfire arrangment treefrog07 a c 78 V Motherboard January 1, 2010 12:44:17 AM I'm thinking you should get one HD 5870, because I'm considering that to replace my two HD 4870s. Then I could add another when the prices come down. We know the 5870 will be good for long a while. m 0 l JackNaylorPE a c 217 V Motherboard January 1, 2010 12:57:19 AM The 4890 has better performance as does the 260....if keeping the GFX cards for more than 2 years tho, the 5770 might be the better buy for longevity reasons. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-310-5970,24...
