Radeon 4830 CF vs 5770?

hi everybody,

I am thinking about upgrading from my old 4830 to an 5770. But now theres the thing, for about the same or probably even less money I could buy a new mobo and another 4830. After having looked at the review,

I'm thinking about CF. In most cases it actually really doubles the performance, way better that I originally thought. In crysis, in 1280x1024 it keeps up with the 4870 x2! :pt1cable:

I can find mobos as low as €40, and 4830s as low as 50-60 euros. total makes 100 instead of a 150 for a 5770.

so would this be a good option? I don't really care about dx 11, I run XP, and my power supply is able to handle it.

so what are your thoughts?

  1. 5770 is not much of an upgrade performance wise...

    you may be better off going CF.
  2. get off the ancient xp, wait for new 6000 series in a couple months and get the middle series card of those ones.... dont invest into old tech imo
    you will care about dx 11 and windows 7 once you get it
