I have the Sapphire 4870 that is 6 months old & I was want to add another one to my system. My questions should I add another 4870 to have 2 in crossfire or buy the 5770 to get DX11?

Thanks,

the two in CF will perform equally and better than the 5770

if you want futur proofness then go with the 5770

it isn't all that great though, if you are upgrading go with a 4870

What do you think about DX11, if I go with the 4870 than I with have it go without DX11

Are u unhappy with a single 4870's performance?
your card is still fast enough...
If u want to upgrade then go for 5xxx series, don't look back on the old tech... :)

Resolution would be nice thing to know to answer this question.

The 4870 (and GTX 260) outperforms the 5770 by about 10%.

I'd get another 4870 .... if I wanted Dx11, I would choose a 58xx or better

Also need to know what PSU you have and can it handle 2 4870's or will you need to buy a new PSU also ?
