Now, I know there are price differences between all these cards and such, but I'm just wondering which one has the best 'bang for your buck'?

The 5770, 5850 or the 5870?

More about : radeon 5770 5850 5870

HD5770 $150.
HD5850 $300.
HD5870 $400.
2 x HD5770 rivals HD5870 in performance. So best bang/$ HD5770

Thanks for the quick reply. Any suggestions on a good AM2+ board which supports Crossfire?

of the three, it would be the 5770

but it may be too much or too little, depending on your system specs & monitor resolution

Well, ATM, I am waiting for the 1055T to be available, but I will be using an AM2+ board (recommendations?) as I don't want to shell out extra $$ for DDR3 for an AM3 board.

My monitor's max resolution is 1680x1050.

Get the 5850 for that resolution it will play all games on high but it wont max games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of prypiat or Battlefield Bad Company 2. What is your budget or are you building a new system?

Would that be with Crossfire or without? Thanks in advance. :)

$150 - $300. I'm looking to save as much money as possible and not pay for something I don't need.

Would a single 5770 suffice or should I up it up to a 5850 for 1680x1050?

I'm tempted to get a 5850 for now, and use Crossfire with another one in the future when required (and cheaper).

Would that be ideal over buying a single 5770?
