More about : 5850 xfire 5770 Best solution Maziar August 3, 2010 7:38:45 PM No,the cards have to be the same(or for ATI cards,sometimes you can CF 2 cards from a same family like CF'ng 4780 with a 4850),check out the SLI/CF FAQ(link in my sig) for more info. Share Martin 71 August 3, 2010 11:46:43 PM well, if the same family thing is correct, then I should be able to xfire my 5770 and 5850...
