Solved HD5770 x2 or HD5850 Tags: Graphics Cards Raidmax Graphics Product Last response: April 12, 2010 1:52 PM in Graphics & Displays Share mopkop April 11, 2010 5:03:56 PM Hi everyone, Which would be better to get 2x HD5770 at x8 or 1x HD5850 at obviously x16, becuase I can get 2 5770 for the same price as 1 5850 Mind you I have the Raidmax RX-730SS if heard that the PSU underperforms but will it be able to run 2x 5770?

The usual situation is to buy single-powerful card and crossfire later. An HD5770CF is the same performance as an HD5870.

Having two 5770's would be pretty awesome though! m 0 l shadow187 a c 130 U Graphics card April 11, 2010 7:46:09 PM You'll be fine with a 550W for Crossfire...each 5770 won't use more than 110 watts... m 0 l rolli59 a c 1410 U Graphics card April 12, 2010 12:43:41 PM multiscreenz said:I think you'll like either option.
