Crossfire with 2 5670's or just one 5850? Tags: New Build Crossfire Systems Last response: February 1, 2010 2:08 PM in Systems Share blu3flannel February 1, 2010 3:28:35 AM Hey, I was just wondering if I should go with 2 5670's in Crossfire mode or just get one 5850? Any advice is appreciated. More about : crossfire 5670 5850 tserich February 1, 2010 3:59:43 AM Get 1 5850 in my opinion. Not every game can use CF and I always believe in a solid single card solution for builds blu3flannel February 1, 2010 4:01:22 AM Thanks, I just needed someone to help me with that. Plus if I get the 5850, I can eventually Crossfire it if I ever have the spare case and get that extra "umph."
