Crossfire Radeon HD 5670

Hello, I want to upgrade my graphics card in my new computer. I have decided that I don't have the funds to go to a HD 5770 as it cost around £130, I could however buy another XFX HD 5670 and crossfire them on my gigabyte UD3H motherboard x8/x8 crossfire enabled. I only game at 1440 x 900 and was wondering if I could max out games on my computer buy adding this second card as I cant max them out with only one 5670. I would be aiming for frames around 60fps.

I play games like; GTA IV, Far cry 2, Crysis, Mass Effect, Oblivion, Bioshock 1 & 2, Fallout 3 etc

The other specs that I have are:

Phenom 955 Black edition @ 3.7Ghz
OCZ 1333 DDR3 Ram (4GB)
Antec 900 case
Gigabyte UD3H USB 3.0 SATA 3
Thanks

  1. You should be able to get those games pretty high. 60FPS might be expecting a bit too much though.

    If you could sell your HD5670 now, and then get an HD5770, that would be about equal to an HD5670x2. Then you can CF that later. A single HD5770 will max those games at your resolution, except Crysis.
  2. He's on 1440x900...
  3. Phenom 955 Black edition + CF 5670 + 1440x900 res = very good performance in any game that supports CF
  4. Have decided just to invest that little bit more and sell my HD 5670 and get a cu core 5770 instead to make system aweosme =D
  5. OC that just a bit and you'll max everything and anything on that monitor.

    I'd recommend a HD5850 man. You'll be much happier.

    I only get 20fps in STALKER with everything set to high (DX10 1680x1050).

    I'm running a HD5850 overclocked to 775/1125. Could you imagine what a 5770 would get? 10fps?


    Your running at 1680 though man, I've only got a 19 inch 1440 x 900 monitor. What other specs you got?. Really cant afford a 5850, wish that I could though :kaola:

    You're doing something wrong.
  8. Lord have mercy you can't play with 16xAA/AF :rolleyes:
  9. Weird. I thought games went up to 32xaa.
