1) how well would this graphic card perform when its crossfired with another xfx ati radeon HD 5770.
2) and would i need better power supply greater than 650watt (planing to buy a more silent running one)
3) and would there be any risks

i may have misunderstood the article
are you saying that HD6k is not that much better than HD5k, and thats the reason for not to crossfire a HD5k?
or that i should w8 until a better graphic card goes down in price, i think that the 5770 is so lowpriced now that i cant almost hold back.
or buy nothing at all
i think im confused

Nah CF with different gen/class GPU won't work and the scaling would be held back by that HD5770 anyway if it did @@
