HD5770s X-fired vs HD5870 Tags: Graphics Cards Performance SLI Graphics Last response: October 5, 2010 8:38 PM in Graphics & Displays Share rwayne a b U Graphics card October 5, 2010 8:08:03 PM Am I missing something? To me two HD5770s or two GTX460s in X-Fire/SLI seem like they would yield higher performance than a HD5870 at a lower price. Can anyone think of any reason not to go in this direction? Also which would be better? HD5770s in X-FIRE or GTX460s in SLI? I am thinking that two GTX460s would yield the biggest bang for the buck.

Not all new games support SLI/CF on launch and some flat out don't ever do it. m 0 l jyjjy a c 376 U Graphics card October 5, 2010 8:38:17 PM Yeah, 2 GTX 460s or overclocking an HD5850 or GTX 470 are the best choices for the money at the moment although holding off a few weeks to see the price/performance of the HD6000 cards is a good idea. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
