Hello I was wondering if two Radeon HD5670's along with a AMD Phenom II x 4 550 3.2Ghz and 4GB DDR2 ram would be able to play the majority of games on high settings @ 1920 x 1080?

and also are you able to lower the resolution that you are playing at on HD monitors? and If you do does it look rubbish? Thanks

It appears to be a pretty good combo.

Check out this review that tests a lot of different games with a crossfire setup of 5670's:

In some of the tests, even a single 5750 is just a few FPS slower than the crossfire where in others, the crossfire blows it away.

you should have solid performance at 1920 x 1080, although for less money you could just get a single 5770 and have similar performance.

yes you can lower game resolution but it simply wont look as good; if its "rubbish" that would be your call as each person's tastes are different.

On average, the crossfire setup of the 5670 seems to be a good setup, but I wonder, how much do two of those cost as compared to just one 5770 which can outperform the crossfire setup of 5670's?


Its because I already have one HD5670 and havent got enough for a 5770, thanks for the answer

Yeh man, I just meant if two HD 5670's were struggling to play at that resolution I could lower res. Never had a HD monitor before. Got a BIGG upgrade coming =D.

Going from the spec in my signiture, to the system I just said, cant wait =D

Then I would say getting another 5670 would help you. But, even at 1920x, there are times where the game might not perform as well. But lower resolutions definitely will get you some sweet frame rates.

also, try to over clock your CPU if you can. A dual core at 2.2ghz is starting to fall to minimum spec level for most new games.

Straight from the guru3d article:

"Recommended Power Supply

So here's my power supply recommendation:

Radeon HD 5670 (single GPU)

* The card requires you to have a 450 Watt power supply unit at minimum if you use it in a high-end system. That power supply needs to have (in total accumulated) at least 35~40 Amps available on the +12 volts rails.

Radeon HD 5670 CrossfireX (dual GPUs)

* A second card requires you to add another 61 Watts. You need a 500+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system. That power supply needs to have (in total accumulated) at least 45 Amps available on the +12 volts rails. "
