Hello,

Haven't seen any posts close enough to answer what i am looking for:

I am building a i7 930 system w/8GB ram and a decent mobo and want a good card for around $150.

I would like something that could crossfire (sorry this terminology is a bit new to me) and has 1GB of fast ram.

I only want the one card for now, and would like to spend around $150.

Get the 5770 for now and that would leave an option for adding another one in the future.And get 6GB(3x2GB)RAM.

Agreed with the 5770 - i've eseen some of those on newegg after rebates for $140-$150

BETTER QUESTION - why are you putting 8gb of RAM in an i7 930 rig? They utilize tri-channel ram (3 sticks) to really shinee. As tamz noted...you need a 6gb kit (3 sticks of 2gb of DDR3 1600)
