Hey guys,
I recently bought half of my gaming pc and all thats left is the graphics card and motherboard. i need some advice on these components. I was wondering whether i should get one 5870 or two 5770 or if anyone has any other suggestions. The dual 5770 is about $80 cheaper but if the single 5870 is better i'll go with it. I cant afford a 5970 by the way ;-)
I also need advice on what motherboard to get. I have no idea here so all suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

Just a quick glance over at tom's hardware's list of best GPUs for each price point here.

To summarize: 5770 xfire ~ 5850 < 5870, says the article.

I would just stick to songle GPU all the way and upgrade GPUs that typically get obsolete fast!
