Hi all,
I am looking to replace my 9600 GT, possibly with a Crossfire setup. What would give me the best value for money, in the price range of ~£150 or less.

CPU: Intel Q6700
Mobo: P5Q Pro
RAM: 4GB OCZ Reaper PC2 8500

4850 - good

5770 - best of the three listed

Would a 5770 be better than two 5670s in CrossFire?

Not sure what 150 in euros will get you but try for a 5830.

The only reason to ever get a 5830 is if you feel brave enough to try to flash it to a 5870/5850.

However, I doubt the success rate would be very good.

In either case, the 5770 is a solid performer for it's price range. It is just about on par with a 4870, but will improve with driver maturity.

If you could afford the extra, a 5850 would offer a longer lifespan and would reduce the need of crossfiring it.

The 5830 has its good points, solid OCing, solid memory bandwidth.
Since it's an AIB card & not a reference all the coolers have been quite good, so with overclocking it should be an OK buy.
