Hey im wondering what you guys think is the best way to go


I have a hd 5770 by powercolor and im sorta wondering should i get the 5770 by sapphire($115) and crossfire my cards?
or should i buy the 6850($140) by sapphire and eventually xfire those?

if i go with the 6850 it will prolly be a few months(2-3) b4 i think about crossfire.
in 2-3 months would i even want to xfire 2 6850's or upgrade further?


So what do you guys think i should do? I have the space and psu to run the 2 5770's

2 5770s perform like 1 5870(even faster in some occasions) so they're faster than 1 6850

Best solution

However two 6850s outperform a GTX 580, so offers the best potential price/performance gain.

I would personally go for the 6850. enough power for now, and gets you much closer to the higher echelon. But its a preference thing. more performance is more cash. are you willing to spend it?
