  1. I need to know if two 4850 1 gb going to run better tha one 5770 ? I can get the 2 4850 1gb for about $ 225 & the 5770 for $ 175 my MOB is a M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 cpu AMD phenom iix4 3.2ghz ram 4gb psu 600 watt and yes I know about the DX11 but for now I can go with dx10.1 thx
  2. well the 4850 in CF is better then a single 5770 but I always prefer the single card solution over the multi, less driver and other compatibility issues.
  3. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    as ct1615 said,2 4850s perform better,but they require more power,run hotter and are much nosier.
    What resolution do you play ?
  4. For a long term, i would say single HD5770 for now and add another one later...
    Yes, 2xHD4850 is more powerful than single HD5770. But 2xHD5770 is far superior and it's about HD5850 performance...

    HD5770= less power consumption, less heat, less noise, dx.11, eyefinity, best card for your money... :)
  5. Double posts...

  7. the two GPUS certainly perform better than the hd 5770 but you get more power consumption, no direct x 11, plus chances of crossfire bridge stauration( sudden but temporary drops in fps)
