My thread here is about me, wanting a new video card.. as my old eVGA 9800 gx2 superclocked just quit.. Ive been scouting around in here, and it seems like AVI is the way 2 go now? My budget is 400-500$, ive been looking alot at Radeon 5770, and making it a crossfire.. But i would like to get you guys opinion..
My spec is the following: - CPU: Intel Core2 Extreme QX6700 3.2 Ghz 1066FSB 8MB cache RAM(CPU is watercooled) - 6 GB DDR2 Ram - HDD: 500 GB Western Digital - Creative Titanium XFi - 1000W DELL PSU - Win 7 ultimate
If you can spend $400 - get a single 5870 instead - it would be just about the same performance wise as dual 5770's yet gives you the choice to add another 5870 later if needed for even better performance.
Yep, no point in starting from the crossfire, makes more sense to start from and HD5870 and then crossfire a cheap one later. No food upgrade strategy with the two 5770s.
