  1. Doesn't matter at all, get which ever card you feel is best and it also doesn't matter (In terms of performance) which make of card you get.

    The difference between brands are:

    warranty length
    Included bundle/accessories
  2. if i choose to run 2 cards which i prob will do , some say that asus board will performs better in cross fire than in sli , is it better to get 1 huge card or 2 smaller cards , ei : 2x 5870 or 1 x 5970
  3. If your board supports SLI and CF then they will both work perfectly fine on your board , doesn't matter whar make your board is.

    Generally its better to get the single fastest card you can afford as it takes up less space in your case ( 2 slots, instead of 4) and leaves you with the option to get another card as an upgrade in the future.

    With your example the 2 x HD5870's will perform about 20% better than a single HD5970 but will also use more power and so will generate more heat.
  4. thanks that is all i needed to know , cooling i dont have a problem with and going the route of 2 x 5870 sounds fine . thank you for the prompt reply .
  5. Your welcome.
