Hi everyone im having a bit of a dilemma right now. Ive recently just built my first gaming rig and right now im using my onboard graphics ati hd 4200 till i could buy a graphics card. I'm a pretty hardcore gamer i play the newest games especially bfbc2,mw2,wow and many other fps games. I am on a somewhat of a budget so the ati hd 5970 is out but would i be better off getting 2 ati hd 5770's or one of them or one 5870.
My build is 8gb corsair 1333 ddr3 ram 2 western digital 7200 rpm 500gb 1 seagate barracuda 80ggb 7200 rpm AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX Rosewill Xtreme Series RX950-S-B 950W Acer X193Wbd Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD 1440 x 900 res
input would be very helpful
More aboutwhich graphics card better
for your current LCD, one 5770 is more the enough
you can CF a second one if you upgrade your monitor at a later time
I tend to agree; Option1) Start off with a single 5770 and add a second one if needed. Option 2) Single 5850/5870 since Crossfire doesn't always scale that well.
Thank you guys i appreciate the input. I think im going to start with the one like you guys suggested
