Asus board for crossfire hd 5770
Feb 17, 2010, 4:54 AM
I am looking at the following board:
Asus P7P55D $170 before combo rebate:
How does the following affect crossfire performance:
2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16 or dual at x8/x8 mode)
1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (at x4 mode, 2.5GT/s)
Ive read a few discussions that claim that x8/x8 with a lowish end card (5770) will not give you a good increase in performance.
Im interested in crossfiring two 5770's down the road but not sure about this mobo.....

ohhh i see....disregard.
I found the answer in the Graphics Card sli/crossfire FAQ.
Looks like x 8 should perform well. Glad i ditched the X4mobo

how is the 5850 cheaper? Newegg has it at $300.....while the 5770 is like $164?
I would love to have purchased a more powerful card, but i have a limited budget and i cannot drop that kind of money soley on a gpu.
thanks for the tip though!

5770 crossfire = 2 X 5770 = $164 X 2 = $300+ = more costlier than a 5850...
